Angelo Bada was born in Novara on 27th May 1876 and died there on 23rd March 1941. His only vocal training was as a boy soprano at the Cathedral. From 1898 he sang the small operatic rôles in which he specialised; by 1905 he was at Covent Garden and by 1906 at La Scala. In 1910, by which time he had begun his thirty-year stint at the Met, he sang at the Paris Opéra. A master of make-up and characterization, he made many guest appearances at other theatres and was Dr Caius in Toscanini’s Falstaff at Salzburg in 1935. He can be heard on a number of studio recordings and broadcasts.
