Italian bass-baritone dies at 57main
We are saddened to hear of the death of Luciano Di Pasquale, a magnificent buffo character who sang at La Scala and internationally in Tokyo, Paris, Oslo, Munich, Glyndebourne, Brussels, Berlin, Rome, Florence, Palermo, Naples, Lyon, Nice, Barcelona, Wexford and more.
The cause of death appears to be a heart condition, not Covid.
Luciano studied with Elio Battaglia and Regina Resnik, maming his name in Mozart and Rossini roles. Since 2008, he has been artistic director of the ArteinCanto Festival in Baschiano.
