Placido Domingo mourns ‘supertenor’

Message from Domingo on the sudden death this weekend of Marcello Giordani:

Dearest Marcello, What an immense sadness I feel for your unexpected and premature departure.

What beautiful memories I immediately call to mind of our beautiful Metropolitan Opera performances of Simon Boccanegra in January 2010 and Tosca in November 2015. We will miss you so much! What a stupendous voice. Goodbye súper tenor.

Carissimo Marcello che immensa tristezza provo per la tua inaspettata e prematura partenza.
Che belle memorie mi sono subito venute in mente delle nostre stupende recite al The Metropolitan Opera di Simone Boccanegra nel gennaio del 2010 e della Tosca a novembre del 2015. Ci mancherai tantissimo ! Che voce stupenda. Addio súper tenore 🙏👏👏👏!

  • Had Domingo not converted to baritone roles late in his career, he would not have had the opportunity to sing with Marcello…in my book both were super tenors…nice tribute…

  • I was just in Taormina last week and saw the posters for a performance of Turandot in September in the Teatro Greco where Giordani performed with a cast of young artists from his YAP masterclasses. This must have been his last ever performance, and he was giving his time to promote new talent. What a lovely thing to be remembered for. Pity I was in town a few weeks too late.
