DO DI PETTO
The first high C was sung in the Teatro del Giglio in Lucca by the twenty-five-year-old French tenor Gilbert Louis Duprez.
It was 17 September 1831, the opera was “Guglielmo Tell” by Rossini […]
“the scream of a slaughtered chicken” was how Rossini described it. The most heroic of the high notes also led to disasters.
