Antonio Rocca (Tenor) (Torino 1876 - ?)





He made his debut at the Paris Gaité-Lyrique in 1908 as Gérald in ‘’Lakme’’. However he made guest appearances also in Italy. In 1910 he performed at the Teatro Ponchielli in Cremona in Puccini’s ‘’Madama Butterfly’’. In France he made records for Gramophone. Probably he died young.
