Giuseppe Micheli (Tenor)


Giuseppe Micheli made his debut in 1909. During his career he rarely made guest appearances abroad (Alessandria 1909/1910 season) and mostly spent his career by performing at the provincial Italian opera stages. At the end of his career he switched to baritone and sang the role of Tonio in ‘’Pagliacci’’ in Torino (Teatro Balbo/1925) and Bergamo (Teatro Nuovo/1926). His repertoire included Cavaradossi in ‘’Tosca’’, Rodolfo in ‘’Boheme’’, Canio in ‘’Pagliacci’’, Don Jose in ‘’Carmen’’, Duca in ‘’Rigoletto’’, Turiddu in ‘’Cavalleria Rusticana’’, Alfredo in ‘’Traviata’’ and Hagenbach in ‘’Wally’’. He retired from the stage in 1926 and taught singing in Italy. Giuseppe Micheli never made records.
