Emilio De Marchi (Tenor) ( Voghera 1861 – Milan 1917)



He had a significant career during the late 19th century and early 20th century, appearing at major theatres on both sides of the Atlantic. In 1900, he entered the annals of musical history as the creator of the role of Cavaradossi in Giacomo Puccini's Tosca. He proved a success at La Scala and was chosen by the composer Puccini to sing the coveted role of Cavaradossi in the first performance of  ''Tosca'', which occurred at Rome's Teatro Costanzi on January 14, 1900.
