Franco Corelli this week on The Lyric Stage

Franco Corelli's career spanned 25 years from his debut in Italy in 1950 until his retirement at the age of 54 in 1975. He was the major international tenor star from his debut at the Met as Manrico in Il Trovatore in 1961, until he left the stage in 1975. The voice live was beautiful and enormous, as is his recorded legacy.
