The Teatro Regio di Parma has announced the death of Lorenzo Anselmi, husband of Renata Scotto for the past 60 years. Lorenzo was 87 and had been in declining health for some time.

The couple met while Scotto was singing at La Scala, where Lorenzo played in the front desk of the violins. They moved to New York, where he became her manager. In recent years, they returned to Italy.

Our condolences to the family.
