Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Herva Nelli was an Italian-born operatic soprano. Named after the French socialist Gustave Herv, she was born in Florence, where she attended a convent school. At the age of twelve, however, she and her family left Italy for Pittsburgh, where she later studied at the Pittsburgh Music Institute.

In ensuing seasons, she gained experience with that ensemble, presenting roles that would form the core of her repertoire, including Leonora in Verdi's La forza del destino and another Leonora in Verdi's Il trovatore. She also sang the title roles of Bellini's Norma, Verdi's A da and Ponchielli's La Gioconda. In 1947, she made her New York City Opera debut, as Santuzza, conducted by Julius Rudelshow more
