Sesto Bruscantini

Biography

Born: December 10, 1919; Porto Civitanova, Italy   Died: May 4, 2003  
Not many historical details are known about this Italian bass baritone who is mainly famous for his comic opera roles. At some point after earning a law degree, Bruscantini studied voice with Luigi Ricci, who was the noted author of Cadenzas, a well-known text on the art of bel canto singing. Bruscantini made his debut in 1946 at Porto Civitanova in Puccini's La bohème and went on to create 130 parts in 108 operas. He was best known for his role Read more in Rossini's Il barbière di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville), but he also sang in operas that were seldom produced, such as Piccinni's La Buona Figliuola and Boccherini's La Clementina. Bruscantini was often heard in the 1950s at famous houses like La Scala, Glyndebourne, and so on, and he sang on-stage well into in the 1990s. Read less
