Rolando Panerai


Rolando Panerai


“Panerai was a large-voiced and exceptionally lively Figaro who raced to and fro like a kitten intrigued by everything around him. The portrayal looked like a delightfully impulsive improvisation.”

Arthur Bloomfield on the baritone’s debut in San Francisco in 1958. Rolando Panerai was one of a number of fine Italian baritones to emerge onto the international operatic scene immediately after World War ll. Some, like Giuseppe Taddei, Gino Bechi, Enzo Mascherini, Paolo Silveri, Tito Gobbi and Giuseppe Valdengo had made their debuts during the late 30’s, which meant that during the hostilities their activities and any recordings made were confined to European audiences. However, from 1945, together with the new wave, which included Aldo Protti, Giangiacomo Guelfi, Giampiero Malaspina, Piero Cappucilli, Anselmo Colzani, Mario Sereni, Antonio Manca-Serra (who died tragically aged 32) and the young Rolando Panerai, their talents began to be recognised world wide, through the media of recordings, stage performances, and in some cases films, many of them enjoying excellent careers. None more so than Rolando Panerai, who incredibly in his late 70’s was still undertaking principal roles and singing with a command and freshness of vocal timbre that surely was the envy of many a singer 30 years younger.
