Giovanni Martinelli was born in
Italy and received his vocal training
under Prof. Mandolini of Milan. One
year after his first public appearance
in Rossini's "Stabat Mater," he at-
tracted the attention of Puccini and
was assigned the leading role at the
European premiere of "The Girl of
the Golden West."
After this came a rapid succession
of engagements in Milan, Monte
Carlo, Genoa, Naples, Turin, Brescia,
Budapest and Brussels. Martinelli
went to London in 1912 and* created
the role of Gennaro in the English
aremiere'of "Jewels of the Madonna."

"Paolo and Francesca," when that
opera was first introduced in London.

Pinza burst upon the New York
music world in the season of 1926, ap-
pearing in the revival of Spontini's
"La Vestale." Since that time he has
been one of the chief favorites of the
New York opera.
Pinza's parents wanted to make
him a civil ingineer, but he gained
his own point by going to Bologna and
studying at the conservatory. His
first important operatic appearance
was in "Tristran" at the Teatro
Realle dell, Opera in Rome. There he
remained for two years.
