Gino Tessari (Baritone) (Trieste ? - ?)



He studied singing at the Milan Conservatory under the pedagogue A. Giovannini. In 1897 he made his debut at the Teatro Prince Amedeo in Sanremo in ‘’Il Padrone’’ by D. Bolognesi. In 1901 he made guest appearances at the Teatro Nazionale in Bucharest performing in A. Ponchielli’s ‘’La Gioconda’’ and ‘’La Traviata’’ by G. Verdi. In 1903 he went to Barcelona, where at the Teatro  Liceo he sang the role of Amonasro in G. Verdi’s ‘’Aida’’. In the 1912-1913 season he performed at the Teatro Coliseo in Buenos Aires, the next season he appeared at the Coliseo Recrejos in Lisbon. Probably he retired from the stage in 1915 and started to appear in movies.
