Hipólito Lázaro
Birth: Sep. 13, 1887
Death: May 14, 1974

Opera Singer. He was born (some sources say December) in Barcelona, Catalunya. At the age of 23, he debuted at the Teatro de Novedades in Barcelona in Donizetti's "La Favorita," followed by "Rigoletto," "L'Africana," "Il Trovatore," "Carmen" and "Aida" in Valencia and "Tosca" in Palma de Mallorca. His Italian debut came late 1910 in "Rigoletto" at the Teatro Tosi-Borghi in Ferrara. He played Mascagni's "Isabeau" in Genova's Teatro Carlo Felice in January 1913, conducted by Mascagni himself. Lázaro's appearance in "Isabeau" created a vast impression on Mascagni, who in the years to follow held him to be his favourite tenor. His repertoire, including Puccini's "La Fanciulla del West" (Buenos Aires, June 1914), "Manon Lescaut" (Buenos Aires July 1915) and "Madama Butterfly" (New York April 1920), Leoncavallo's "Pagliacci" (Habana January 1917) and Mascagni's own "Iris" (Alexandria, February 1912), "Parisina" (Milano, December 1913), "Isabeau" (Genova, March 1913) and "Cavalleria Rusticana" (Rio de Janeiro July 1914). In April 1915 he sang in the premiere of Romani's "Fedra" at the Costanzi of Rome, the lead which had been created for Lázaro. Also, he became an appreciated Rhadames. In his last years, he was acclaimed through the zarzuela. During the 30's he performed in "La Dolores," "Curro Vargas," "Dońa Francisquita" and "La Tempestad." (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
