Mariano Stabile

Stabile was born into a distinguished Italian family: his grandfather had been a mayor of Palermo and his uncle a strong proponent of a united Italy. His family did not support his decision to study singing at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia, Rome, where he was a pupil of the internationally renowned baritone, Antonio Cotogni. He made his operatic stage debut in 1909 as Marcello / La Bohème at the Teatro Biondo, Palermo where he also sang Amonasro / Aida.

By the outbreak of World War I Stabile had gained significant success both in Italy and abroad, appearing in St Petersburg in 1911, Buenos Aires in 1913 and Barcelona in 1914. He was particularly praised for his performance of Alfonso / La favorita at the Teatro Costanzi, Rome and was given an extended contract by the two directors of this theatre, Walter Mocchi and Emma Carelli. Later roles there included Klingsor / Parsifal—the only other Wagnerian part he was to sing was Beckmesser / Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg—and in 1913 he participated in the first performance of Domenico Monleone’s opera L’arabesca. His introduction to Milan took place when he sang Lescaut / Manon Lescaut in a production at the Teatro del Verme starring Claudia Muzio and Giovanni Martinelli.
