Mario Lanza sings without microphone in front of 8000 people piled up in this immense cave with deplorable acoustics where the voice can be lost and become inaudible, as that arrived at Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau.
This concert, only recorded this European round, was a triumph: the Lanza man appeared there, while speaking with intelligence, kindness and impishness, creating a bond obvious and moving with the public. (Mario Lanza Live from London). The tenor Nicolaï Gedda, present in the room, declares: “It is the greatest voice which I ever heard! ”
Richard Bonynge, director of the opera of London, and his wife, the soprano Joan Sutherland, who attended this concert, will declare: “We knew that in films the voice is amplified, but we do not expect to hear a voice of a similar dimension nor of such a musical quality. There is no doubt that Mario Lanza could have made a fantastic career with the Opera”.
