Isidoro Fagoaga (Tenor) (Vera, Navarra, Spain 1895 - San Sebastian, Spain 1976)





He studied singing with the pedagogue Luis Iribarne and then went to continue his education in Italy. There he studied at the conservatory of  Parma under M. Silva. He made his debut in 1920 at the Teatro Grande in Madrid as Samson in ‘’Samson et Dalila’’ of Saint-Saens. Probably his first appearance in Italy was at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples where he sang the role of Siegmund in Wagner’s ‘’Walkiria’’.
