Edoardo Mario Pagani (Tenor)



Cavaradossi

Probably he made his debut in 1897. Already in the 1899-1900 season he appeared in Spain (Valencia. Teatro Principal, Barcelona. Teatro Tivoli, Madrid. Teatro Buen Retiro). In 1901 he made guest appearance at the Politeama Argentino in Buenos Aires. Here he performed in ‘’Gioconda’’, ‘’Manon Lescaut’’ and ‘’Boheme’’. In the 1902-1903 season he again sang at the Teatro Tivoli of Barcelona in ‘’Lucia di Lammermoor’’, ‘’Faust’’ and ‘’Boheme’’. Then he went to sing in Alessandria. In 1904 he arrived in Lisbon, where at the Coliseo Recrejos appeared in ‘’Zaza’’, ‘’Boheme’’, Cavalleria rusticana’’, ‘’Lucia di Lammermoor’’, ‘’Traviata’’, ‘’Rigoletto’’ and ‘’Faust’’. Guest appearances followed in Alessandria (1904), Valencia (1906), Rio de Janeiro (1908), San Paolo (1908), Madrid (1909) and Oporto (1909). In his native Italy Pagani sang in Messina (Teatro Vittorio Emanuele. ‘’Tosca’’, 1901), Venezia (Teatro Rossini. ‘’Boheme’’, 1902), Pistoia (Teatro Manzoni. ‘’Manon  Lescaut’’, 1902), Milan (Teatro Dal Verme. ‘’Cavalleria rusticana’’, 1905). Probably his last appearance was at the Teatro Ciscutti in Pola, where he sang the role of Turiddu in P. Mascagni’s ‘’Cavalleria rusticana’’. Edoardo Mario Pagani made only one record for Odeon Fonotipia.
