Mario Matroiani (Matrojani) (Tenor)



                                 1903 Reggio Emilia Teatro Municipale Rigoletto (Duca)


He made his debut approximately in 1900. In 1901 he appeared at the Teatro Carignano of Torino as Rodolfo in ‘’La Boheme’’. In the 1902-1903 season Matroiani/Matrojani sang at the Teatro Municipale in Reggio Emilia. Here he performed in ‘’Rigoletto’’ and ‘’Maria di Rohan’’. Then guest appearances followed in Warsaw (1904) and Alessandria (1905). Matroiani performed also in St. Petersburg (1910) and Bucharest (1914). Probably he retired from the stage in 1915.
