Death of an international tenor, 80

The Italian tenor Giorgio Merighi who went from La Scala to most of the world’s great houses in the 1970s, has died in the central town of Jesi, where he once served as director of the Pergolesi theatre.

He sang ten different roles at the Vienna State Opera and made his Met farewell in 1998 as Radames in Aida, with Domingo conducting.
