    How good a singer was Mario Lanza?

    Lanza’s voice was a perfectly placed lirico spinto of extended range (low A to high D) with a luscious baritone quality, which made him sound oh, so masculine (unlike most modern tenors whose voices are shrill, weak, or strained).

    Mario Lanza was an American tenor of Italian ancestry, and an actor and Hollywood film star of the late 1940s and the 1950s. Lanza began studying to be a professional singer at the age of 16. After appearing at the Hollywood Bowl in 1947, Lanza signed a seven-year film contract with Louis B. Mayer, the head of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, who saw his performance and was impressed by his singing. Prior to that, the adult Lanza had sung only two performances of an opera. The following year, however, he sang the role of Pinkerton in Puccini’s Madama Butterfly in New Orleans. His film début for MGM was in That Midnight Kiss with Kathryn Grayson and Ethel Barrymore. A year later, in The Toast of New Orleans, his featured popular song “Be My Love” became his first million-selling hit. In 1951, he played the role of tenor Enrico Caruso, his idol, in the biopic The Great Caruso, which produced another million-seller with “The Loveliest Night of the Year” . The Great Caruso was the top-grossing film that year.
