Ezio Fortunato Pinza
Birth: May 18, 1892
Lazio, Italy
Death: May 9, 1957

Opera Singer. It is said that his father insisted that he give up civil engineering to become an opera singer. He switched careers, studying at the Conservatory of Bologna, with a three-year stint at La Scala in Milan. His New York debut at the Met was in 1926 where he sang bass until 1949. He then launched a third career, starring on Broadway in "South Pacific", leading to roles in records, radio, movies, and television.

Mr. Pinza, I'm grateful that your magnificent voice can still be heard today. My favorites will always be found in 'South Pacific'. May God bless and keep you always! XXX OOO
