Enrico Caruso (born Errico Caruso; February 25, 1873 - August 2, 1921) was an Italian opera singer and one of the greatest tenors in history --- Caruso was also the most popular singer in any genre in the first two decades of the 20th Century and one of the most important pioneers of recorded music --- Caruso's popular recordings and his extraordinary voice, known for its mature power, beauty and unequaled richness of tone, made him perhaps the best known operatic star of his era --- Such was his influence on singing style, virtually all subsequent Italianate tenors (and many non Italian tenors) have been his heirs to a greater or lesser extent --- He remains famous, though he predated the publicity that would aid later stars of opera - although it should be noted that Caruso was a client of Edward Bernays (the father of public relations) in the latter's tenure as a press agent in the USA.Read more ›
like the young boy at the beginning of the movie. So as i was included
in my church's boys choir one day i started to sing like the young Caruso
and within seconds....i knew i did'nt have the voice....but this movie
made me want to sing...so it is a powerfull movie for some and entertaining for others...but still im glad it was made and i love singers
like The great Carusso...Mario Lanza....Nelson Eddie...Jeanette Macdonald.............they do melt your heart.
It began with the boy singing in the street. He also sang in the church choir too etc. It seems that it was shot somewhere in a small village in Tuscany with some reality.
Only Caruso's funeral was true. But the DVD comes with quite a bonus of a few of Caruso's arias. The sound as a whole is not bad at all. But there is not much drama in the movie, and as a whole, it isn't really a success. If you have one or two of this master's CD, you might as well avoid it.
