 Update me on new releases by Valletti

Cesare Valletti (1922 - 2000)

The son of a doctor, Valletti studied music privately in Rome and became a student of the tenor Tito Schipa. He made his operatic stage debut at Bari in 1947 at the Teatro Petruzelli as Alfredo / La traviata, after which he appeared in many Italian opera houses in both the Mozartian and bel canto repertoires.

Internationally, Valletti’s breakthrough came in 1950 when he sang Narciso / Il turco in Italia at the Teatro Eliseo, Rome opposite Maria Callas and Mariano Stabile. He also deputized as Fenton / Falstaff at La Scala, Milan in a production which subsequently toured to the Royal Opera House, London. The following year he sang Alfredo in Mexico City, once again opposite Maria Callas, and went on to appear at the Teatro Colón, Buenos Aires; Rio de Janeiro; the Vienna State Opera and in Paris and Amsterdam. His international presence was also greatly aided by his participation in numerous Italian radio opera productions released as commercial recordings on the Cetra label.
