Francesco Tamagno (1850 - 1905)

Tamagno was born into a large family of fifteen children, whose father was a local wine-seller and restaurant owner. He sang while still at school and from 1870 to 1873 studied singing with the conductor and composer Carlo Pedrotti at the Liceo Musicale in Turin, while also undertaking military service for six months between 1871 and 1872. During this period he gained stage experience as a chorister at the Teatro Regio, Turin (of which Pedrotti was also director) and appeared as a comprimario for the first time in 1872 as Gaspero in Cortesi’s La colpa del cuore, later attracting notice for his high notes in another small part, Nearco / Poliuto.

In 1874 Tamagno sang his first major role: Riccardo / Un ballo in maschera at the Teatro Massimo, Palermo. During the 1874–1875 season he sang the title role in Roberto il diavolo at Rovigo and appeared in several operas including Poliuto and Lucia di Lammermoor (opposite Albani) at the Teatro La Fenice, Venice. He then spent the next two seasons at the Teatro del Liceu, Barcelona where he expanded his repertoire of major roles, including several by Verdi.
