Enzo De Muro Lomanto (Tenor) (Canosa di Puglia, Apulien 1902 – Napoli 1952)




Born Vincenzo De Muro, he studied in Naples, adding "Lomanto" to his name to avoid confusion with another tenor, Bernardo De Muro. He made his debut at Catanzaro, as Alfredo, in 1925. Shortly afterwards, he appeared at the San Carlo in Naples, as Cavaradossi. He made his La Scala debut in 1928 as Tonio. He would sing there until 1943. He also appeared at the Paris Opйra in 1936, as Duca di Mantua, and at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in Florence, in The Tales of Hoffmann, in 1938. He also took part in the creation of Giordano's Il Re, at La Scala, in 1929. De Muro Lomanto made a number of records and can be heard in the first complete recording of Lucia di Lammermoor, opposite Mercedes Capsir. He married the lyric soprano Toti Dal Monte in Sydney, Australia, during a 1928 operatic tour. The wedding party created international headlines when it gave the Fascist salute on the steps of St Mary's Cathedral. He died in 1952, aged 49, in Naples, from undisclosed causes.
