Bindo Gasparini (Tenor) (Carpi 1880 - ?)
He was the husband of the famous soprano Elvira Magliulo. Probably he made his debut in 1903 at the Teatro Coccia in Novara as Fedrico in ‘’Germania’’. In 1914 at the Teatro Massimo in Palermo he sang in the première of the opera ‘’Parsifal’’ of Wagner appearing as Parsifal. Although Gasparini has never appeared in North America, but in 1907 he recorded few arias and duets for the USA Zonophone.
