Mario Ancona (circa 1896)


Italian opera singer, a baritone and master of bel canto singing, who appeared at some of the most important opera houses in Europe and America during what is commonly referred to as the "Golden Age of Opera. He made his debut in Trieste in 1890, displaying an outstanding voice, especially in the higher register. After his peak he turned to vocal coaching.

Mario Ancona died from lung cancer on 23 February 1931 at age 70 in Florence, Italy. His thoroughbred voice lives on in a series of gramophone recordings which he made during the first decade of the 20th century for Pathé in 1905–1906 and, more rewardingly, for the Victor Talking Machine Company in 1907–1908.
