Ferruccio Tagliavini (Tenor)
Born: 14th August 1913, Reggio Emilia, Italy
Died: 28th January 1995, Reggio Emilia, Italy
Ferruccio Tagliavini was an Italian operatic tenor mainly active in the 1940s and 1950s. Tagliavini was hailed as the heir apparent to Tito Schipa and Beniamino Gigli in the lyric-opera repertory due to the exceptional beauty of his voice, but he did not sustain his great early promise across the full span of his career.
