Forgotten Opera Singers
Forgotten Tenors: Leon Laffitte (2 photos), Richard Kubla, Luigi Marletta and William Miller
Since 1903 he studied singing at the New Odeon Conservatory
in Athens. He
made his debut at the Greek island
of Syros in 1906 as
Ourrias in Gounod’s ‘’Mireille’’. was a very popular singer who possessed one
of the greatest voices that have ever been heard on greek lyric stages. In 1913
he performed with great success in ‘’Rigoletto’’ and ‘’Ernani’’ in Bucharest. Between 1920
and 1923 he sung in Italy (Pisa, Brescia, Treviso, Palermo, Florence and Rome).
Till 1920 he was a meber of the “Greek Melodrama” company in Greece. His
chance for a great international career was lost when he decided to return to Greece due to the unstable political climate in Italy and his objection to Mussolini's attacks
on the island of Corfu.
