Mario Bertolino

Born Ercole Bertolino in Palermo on September 10th, 1931, he sang main baritone parts, mostly in provincial theaters, in younger years, and then basso-buffo parts, again in provincial theaters, but as late as 2007. He died April 28th, 2015 in Riveredge, NJ, where he had been living for decades.

François Nouvion wrote:

Bertolino sang basso parts. Why he is described as a tenor to be compared to Caruso and Lanza on the LP I have is strange.
