Antonio Rocca (Tenor) (Torino 1876 - ?)






Probably he made his debut in Italy, but soon decided to leave Italy to make a career in France. I think he sang at the Opera-Comique, Paris. However he made guest appearances also in Italy. In 1910 he performed at the Teatro Ponchielli in Cremona in Puccini’s ‘’Madama Butterfly’’. In France he made records for Gramophone. Probably he died young.
