Angelo Angioletti (Tenor) (Barcelona 1862 - Barcelona 1909)

                                                    as Raoul in ‘’Gli Ugonotti’’

His real name was Jaume Bachs I Roses. In 1890, he made his debut as baritone at the Teatro Miguel de Cervantes in Malaga, singing with the company of Jose Tolosa. Prominent members of the company included Emma Nevada, Mariano de Padilla, and Dante del Papa. In 1891, Angioletti sang at the Teatro Calderon (Valladolid), Real (Madrid) and Liceo (Barcelona). In 1896, he alternated the role of Lohengrin with Vinas at the San Carlo. During the same year, he also sang in Un ballo in maschera with Magini-Coletti and Buliciova; in Dona Flor with Carlo Buti and Buliciova. From there, he went to the Costanzi singing in Les Huguenots with Degli Abbati, Padovani, Galli, and Borelli-Angelini (1898). He came back to the Costanzi to sing Otello in 1908 with De Luca and Melis and Mugnone. Angioletti sang in the premieres of Raimondo Lulio of Breton at the Teatro Lirico in Madrid (June 1902) and of Emporium of Enric Morena (January 1906). In 1905, he had to replace Leo Slezak as Tannhauser at the La Scala in the only Slezak’s fiasco I am aware of. Angioletti specialized in Wagnerian and late Verdi roles.
