Aureliano Pertile (1885 - 1952)

Aureliano Pertile was born eighteen days after the birth of another great Italian tenor, Giovanni Martinelli, also in Montagnana. As a boy, Pertile sang in the choir of Montagnana Cathedral and following his schooling was apprenticed as a goldsmith; however he then studied singing for four years with Vittorio Orefice in Padua. His operatic stage debut was in 1911 as Lionel / Martha in Vicenza, after which he appeared in Asti, Brescia and Genoa and undertook further study with Manlio Bavagnoli in Milan.

At the Teatro Massimo, Palermo during 1914 Pertile sang Herod in Richard Strauss’s Salome and Mateo in Zandonai’s Conchita opposite Tarquinia Tarquini (who later married Zandonai). Also in 1914 he created a sensation at the Teatro San Carlo, Naples as Pinkerton / Madama Butterfly and as Don José / Carmen. During the following year he took part in the premiere of Mario Mariotti’s opera Una tragedia fiorentina at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome. He made his debut at La Scala, Milan in 1916 as Paolo in Zandonai’s Francesca da Rimini.
