Ivo Vinco has died in Verona, where he made his 1954 debut as Ramfis in Aida. He was 86.
He sang in every major house and with most of the leading conductors of his time. He married the lustrous mezzo Fiorenza Cossotto, with whom he had a son. Although they divorced, she was at Ivo’s deathbed this week.
