Carlo Tagliabue

Having studied singing with Leopoldo Gennai and Annibale Guidotti, Tagliabue made his operatic stage debut in 1922 as Amonasro / Aida followed by Hermann / Loreley (Catalani), both at Lodi. In 1923 he enjoyed success at Genoa, making his debut there as Kurwenal / Tristan und Isolde and subsequently singing Escamillo / Carmen opposite Conchita Supervia. He appeared in Florence, Palermo and the Verona Arena, as well as abroad in Lisbon and in Havana during the 1929–1930 season.

Tagliabue now established himself as one of Italy’s leading baritones, making his debuts at La Scala, Milan and Turin in 1930 and at Rome and Naples in 1931, in each instance as Kurwenal. His German repertoire also included Göttterdämmerung, Lohengrin and Tannhäuser, all sung in Italian. He remained a principal baritone for twenty-five years at La Scala, where his Italian repertoire included the title roles in Nabucco and Rigoletto, as well as Germont père / La traviata, di Luna / Il trovatore, Montfort / I vespri siciliani, Don Carlo / La forza del destino, Barnaba / La Gioconda, Alfio / Cavalleria rusticana, Tonio / Pagliacci and David / L’amico Fritz. He also sang in several first performances at La Scala including Robbiani’s Guido del popolo (1933), Respighi’s La fiamma (1934) and Rocca’s La morte di Frine (1937).
