Celeste Vornos (Mezzo-Soprano)




Probably she made her debut in 1907. In 1909 she appeared at the Teatro Mercadante of Napoli where she sang the role of Lola in Mascagni’s ‘’Cavalleria rusticana’’. At the same opera house she performed also in 1910, this time she sang in ‘’Andea Chenier’’ and ‘’Fortunio’’. Then she went to Alessandria and appeared at the Teatro Alhambra in ‘’Iris’’,  ‘’Rigoletto’’, ‘’Walkiria’’ and ‘’Madama Butterfly’’. Guest appearances followed in Bucharest, where she sang in Neopera and Teatro Nazionale. After this appearances she continues to perform on the italian opera houses (Roma. Teatro Nazionale, Palermo. Teatro Biondo, Genova. Politeama Genovese etc.). Vornos retired from the stage in 1928. She made records for Fonografia Nazionale and Artiphon. Her records are very difficult to find.
