GIOVANNI MARTINELLI
Giovanni Martinelli signs a piece of paper in blue ink.
Signature: "G Martinelli", 5x4 lined sheet. Italian tenor Giovanni Martinelli (1885-1969) appeared in 663 performances at New York's Metropolitan Opera, singing there from 1913 to 1946. Known for his longevity in the opera world, Martinelli, who became Enrico Caruso's successor in dramatic roles, had made his opera debut in 1908 (as the messenger in Aida) and sang his last performance in 1967. In 1912, Martinelli made his Covent Garden debut as Cavaradossi in Tosca (he returned to Covent Garden in 1937). Over the years, he increased his repertoire to include most of the Italian and French dramatic roles. Although Martinelli stopped singing at the Met in 1945, he continued to participate in various benefit recitals there. Martinelli's last "full" role was as Samson in Philadelphia in 1950, but in 1967 - at age 82 - he sang the Emperor in a Seattle production of Turndot. Lightly creased. Faint 1-inch mark crosses "Ma" of signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
