Enrico Di Mazzei (Enricus Damasus Tacchella Di Mazzei) (Sofia, Bulgaria 1894 - Geneva, Switzerland 1958?)




He studied singing in Milan with the famous teacher Fumagalli and later at the Conservatory at Geneve. In this city, he made his debut in 1925. He made his successful debut at l'Opera Comique in Paris in 1926 as Cavaradossi in "La Tosca" and sang in several other theaters at Lyon, Nice, Bordeaux, Liæge and Monte Carlo, with increasing success while adding to his repertory, "Madama Butterfly", "La Bohæme", "Rigoletto" and "Werther". The critics augured him a brilliant international career. Unfortunately, in 1928, during a tour in Bulgaria there was an earthquake and he was said to be among the victims. However another source states he died in the 1950s, while another one states he died young from Syphillis.
