We have been notified of the death of Carlos Feller on Deecmber 21.

After making his debut at the Colon in Buenos Aires in 1946, he made his first London appearance a dozen years later at Sadlers Wells in Cimarosa’s Il maestro di cappella. He went on to appear on all major stages and in numerous recordings.

    He was also fantastic as Bartolo in the Rossini. I think the secret to his effectiveness in these comedic-villain roles is that he played them straight, with serious bad intentions, almost always resisted the urge to be a clown.
