Italian tenor opera singer and recording artist. He made his American debut in San Francisco in 1950. By 1955, Del Monaco was singing in his prime on Italian television in "Andrea Chenier." His voice was magnificently strong and robust. Performing arias that were full of sweetness and tenderness, he was a big opera star during the 1950s, considered the Golden Era of Italian Opera. He was associated with the New York Metropolitan from 1951 to 1959, reaching a peak in 1958 when music critics wrote that his voice had a brazen superb fullness. His most famous role was that of Verdi's "Othello." He wrote an autobiography about his life on the international opera stage.
He died on 10/16/1982 in Mestro, Italy.
