Una bellissima lagrima

I first heard Renzo Casellato in Marilyn Horne’s 1977 Tancredi1. To my surprise I didn’t find much about him online2. Youtube once again came to the rescue. Aside from rock solid technique and a beautiful, manly but nuanced tone, I dig his subtle interpretation(s). Although he can belt with the best of them, he doesn’t overdo it and finishes the aria on a soft, elegant note.


  1. He’s the excellent Argirio in that production. I liked him above everybody else, hence why I looked him up. 
  2. Although there’s a very positive entry about him in The Music Antiquarian Blog
