Angelo Santini (Tenor)




He made his debut in 1900 at the Sociale of Biella in ‘’Manon’’ and already in 1901 made guest appearances at the Teatro Nazionale of Bucharest singing in ‘’Faust’’, ‘’Rigoletto’’, ‘’La Boheme’’ and ‘’La Favorita’’. That same year, Santini also performed in the cities of Ukraine (Kharkov, Ekaterinoslav) and Russia (Rostov, St. Petersburg). In 1904 he appeared at the Politeama Genovese of Genova in Donizetti’s ‘’Lucia di Lammermoor’’. In 1906 he was in Ascoli Piceno, where at the Teatro Ventidio Basso he sang the role of Nadir in Bizet’s ‘’I Pescatori di Perle’’. Two years later he again appeared at the Teatro Nazionale of Bucharest, but this time as Cavaradossi in ‘’Tosca’’ and as Pinkerton in ‘’Madama Butterfly’’. Probably his last appearance was in 1911. It happened at the Teatro Coccia of Novara, where he sang in Gounod’s ‘’Faust’’.
