Pesaro - Renata Tebaldi

Renata Tebaldi was born in Pesaro and was a great Italian soprano. Remembered as one of the most popular opera singers of all times, she was acclaimed in particular as an interpreter of Verdi and Puccini. Her career spanned over three decades. She studied at the Conservatory of Parma with Italo Brancucci and Ettore Campogalliani, debuted in 1944 in Rovigo in the role of Elena in Mefistofele by Arrigo Boito and in 1946 she made her debut at La Scala under Arturo Toscanini's baton, singing "the prayer of Moses in Egypt" by Rossini. Called "angel's voice" by Toscanini, she had a sharp, clear, opulent, soft, velvety voice, penetrating in the the same time, as a true lyric soprano.
