Angelo Lo Forese died yesterday in Milan, six weeks after reaching his centenary.
After a 1952 Trovatore debut in Morocco, he sang in more than 80 operas on three continents. The title of his memoirs is ‘The Tenor with the packed suitcase under his bed’.
He was in fine voice well into his 90s.

And here he goes at 92.
