Nino Ederle (Tenor) (Verona 1892 - Milano 1951)



Probably he began his stage career in 1919. During the 1920s he sang in the leading Italian opera houses. In 1925 he appeared at the Teatro San Carlo, Napoli as Elvino in ‘’La Sonnambula’’. In 1926 Ederle made guest appearance in Rio de Janeiro. Here he sang in ‘’Don Carlo’’, ‘’Il Barbiere di Siviglia’’, ‘’Il Matrimonio Segreto’’, ‘’Rigoletto’’ and ‘’Un caso singolar’’. In 1927 he again performed at the Teatro San Carlo in Napoli, but this time in ‘’Madama Butterfly’’. Two years later he made his debut at the Teatro La Scala, Milan appearing in Verdi’s ‘’Rigoletto’’. Ederle continues to perform on the opera stages until 1942, then he worked in Verona as a pedagogue; the known soprano Rosanna Carteri was his pupil.
