Picture of  Ernesto Veronelli
I was very happy to find confirmed what I remembered: I've seen Ernesto Veronelli only once, when I was a child, in Aida, and I have an excellent memory of his performance. It was an Arena di Verona production, staged in a totally unsuitable venue in Vienna, the Stadthalle - a multipurpose hall whose acoustics are more suited to tennis tournaments than to opera performances. And yet Veronelli made a deep impression. After so many years, I "rediscovered" him after getting a complete Trovatore where he sang - early in his career - Ruiz (most probably his only studio recording), and am again quite impressed. He has a website with many pictures, some more excellent live recordings, and what is perhaps the best chronology on any singer's website.
