Margherita Carosio (b1908)

Margherita Carosio’s father Natale Carosio was a singing teacher and composer who oversaw his daughter’s vocal studies, which later continued at the Paganini Conservatory in her home city of Genoa. She first performed in public in concert when only fourteen and made her stage début in 1924 at Novi Ligure, near Genoa, in the title rôle of Lucia di Lammermoor. Shortly afterwards Margaret Sheridan, the Irish soprano then active in Italy, recommended her to Covent Garden for the rôle of Feodor in Boris Godunov, singing opposite Feodor Chaliapin in 1928. This was clearly a formative experience, Carosio later saying that it made her realise what it meant not just to take on a rôle but to become it. In the same season she also sang Musetta/La Bohème.
