Raffaele Arie

Initially Arié intended to become a violinist, but turned to singing following study with the baritone Cristo Brambaroff in Sofia. He made his concert début there in 1939, in Handel’s Messiah. In 1945 he was engaged by the Sofia Opera and during the following year he won first prize in the Geneva International Singing Competition. Following further study in Italy with Riccardo Stracciari, Apollo Granforte and Carlo Tagliabue he made a successful début at La Scala, Milan, as the King in Prokofiev’s The Love for Three Oranges in 1947. He appeared at La Scala frequently, for instance singing Varlaam/Boris Godunov (1949) and Konchak/Prince Igor (1952), as well as in the first performances of Lodovico’s L’Uragano (1952) and Ildebrando Pizzetti’s Clitennestra (1965).
