Our dear irreplaceable Maestro Leo Nucci, we learn thanks to fellow Nucci fangirl Opéra Bouffe, the other night celebrated on stage the 400th performance of Rigoletto of his extraordinary career. In Piacenza, where the audience went so ape that he had to give THREE encores of Vendetta, Sì, Tremenda Vendetta.
To the greatest Italian opera baritone (DUH!) working today, and one of the greatest in history, our humble, loving grazie, Maestro.
