Claudia Muzio (1889 - 1936)

Claudia Muzio was born into an operatic family: her father was a stage manager who worked at the Royal Opera House, London and the Metropolitan Opera, New York (at the time of her debut there) while her mother was a chorus singer, also at the Met. When she was still only two, the family moved to London and it was here that Muzio was educated, becoming fluent in English.

She returned to Italy when she was sixteen to study harp in Turin, followed by vocal studies with Annetta Casaloni, who had created the role of Maddalena in the world premiere of Rigoletto. More studies followed, in Milan with Elettra Callery-Viviani, before Muzio made her operatic stage debut in Arezzo in 1910 singing the title role in Massenet’s Manon; and during 1911 she made her first recordings, for The Gramophone Company, of extracts from La Bohème and La traviata.
