Francesco Bravi (Tenor) (? - Roma 1906)




Probably he made his debut in 1898 at the Teatro Metastasio in Regio in ‘’La figlia di Jorio’’ of Guglielmo Branca. During of his short career he appeared not only in Italy, but also in Odessa, Egypt, Santiago del Cile, Lisbon, London and Madrid. In some opera performances he sang with his wife, soprano Linda Cannetti. For example in 1899 in ‘’Lohengrin’’ at the Teatro Civico in Cagliari and in 1900 at the same Teatro Civico in Cagliari as Rodolfo in ‘’La Boheme’’ of Puccini. Unfortunately he died young from severe uricemia.
