Luigi Nicoletti-Kormann (Bass) (Rome 1875 - Barcelona 1919)




He was a pupil of the famous bass Romano Nannetti in Rome. He made his debut in 1889 at the Teatro Sociale in Crema as Oroveso in’’Norma’’. In 1898 he appeared at the Teatro Verdi in Pisa as Geronte in Puccini’s ‘’Manon Lescaut’’. He had a successful career in the Italian theaters; thus he sang among other things in Buenos Aires (Teatro Colon, as Alberico in ‘’Wagner’s ‘’Sigfrido’’. 1908), Parma (Teatro Regio, as Rodolfo in ‘’La Sonnambula’’. 1903), Bologna (Teatro Comunale, as an Archibaldo in ‘’Amore dei tre Re’’. 1913), Venice  (Teatro La Fenice, as Don Basilio in ‘’Il Barbieri di Siviglia’’. 1915). More successfully his career developed in Spain and in South America. In 1918 Nicoletti-Korman performed at the Teatro Reale in Madrid as Colline in ‘’La Boheme’’. He died in Barcelona, where he was engaged in the local opera season due to a sudden illness. He was a brother of the well-known baritone Francesco Nicoletti.
