The revered and celebrated operatic giant, Errico Caruso was born February 25, 1873 to a poor family. He showed an early passion for music and despite many setbacks and early critiques that would have completely discouraged most; the promising young talent changed his name to Enrico to become one of the recording industry’s first true superstars and one of the greatest tenors that ever lived. His voice soared above the constraints of early recording technology and his records achieved far greater popularity than any other music of the time.
During his career, Caruso made over 266 recordings. He sang at many of the World’s greatest opera houses but he is best remembered for his 17-year career as leading tenor at New York’s Metropolitan Opera House which began on November 23rd, 1903 with his seminal performance as the Duke of Mantua in Verdi’s Rigoletto.
His last performance at the “Met” was as Eleazar in Halevy’s La Juive on December 24,1920. Caruso passed away in 1921. He was only 48 years of age. He is buried in Naples, the city of his birth.
