Riccardo Stracciari (1875 - 1955)

Stracciari, whose father was a stone-mason and sculptor, studied at the Bologna Conservatory for a short time after first obtaining a diploma in engineering. After this, from 1894 he took part in various theatrical productions as a chorister, most notably with the operetta company of Giovanni Gargano, while also continuing to study singing with Umberto Masetti in Bologna. He made his concert debut in 1898 in Florence, replacing Giuseppe Kaschmann at short notice in Lorenzo Perosi’s oratorio La risurrezione di Lazarro, followed shortly afterwards by his operatic debut as Marcello / La Bohème at the Teatro Duse in Bologna.

Thereafter Stracciari made solid progress: singing in the Italian provinces (for instance in the theatres of Livorno, Spezia, Rovigo and Trieste), taking part in the 1900–1901 season in Lisbon and returning there in 1903–1904, as well as singing in Egypt and Chile. He made his debut at La Scala, Milan in 1904 as Amonasro / Aida, and sang there regularly between 1904 and 1906, when he took part in The Queen of Spades and Alfano’s Risurrezione, and then between 1908 (in a notable production of Spontini’s La vestale) and 1909. He sang at the Royal Opera House, London during 1905, appearing as Rigoletto, Amonasro, Germont père / La traviata, and di Luna / Il trovatore.
