Corelli: A Man, A Voice by Marina Boagno
(Second edition, revised and expanded)

This book has been re-written and expanded since Corelli’s death. Unrivalled in his time as Caruso was before him, yet unlike his great predecessor, Corelli lived an ascetic life away from the theatre, pushing himself relentlessly to gain complete mastery of his voice and reaching new frontiers of technical virtuosity.  Boagno clears up the mysteries and misunderstandings that arose throughout Corelli’s career, revealing much about the man along the way.

“He was fantastic, because in every note that he sang one heard passion and suffering, which are the same thing, because passion is full of suffering… I wish you could have seen Corelli just once on stage. When they say class, that was class. When they say voice, that was a voice.” – Grace Bumbry
