Giuseppe Garuti (Tenor) (Modena 1895 - ?)



http://www.lavoceantica.it/

He made his debut in 1921 at Politeama Verdi of Cremona in Cavalleria Rusticana. He excited in 1921 the first sensation in Genoa as Alfredo in Verdi’s ‘’ Traviata’’. He had considerable career in the big Italian provincial stages, especially in Genoa, where he appeared with success among other things in 1922 in ‘’ Gioconda’’ of  Ponchielli, in 1926 in ‘’Lucia di Lammermoor’’. In 1936 he made guest appearance at the Teatro Massimo in Palermo. He retired from the stage in 1940. He had to give up his career early, because he lost his voice, probably because he had too often sung the heavy parts.
