Antonio Scotti

Antonio Scotti (1866–1936) was one of the great actors of the operatic stage. Although some critics found the quality of his baritone voice to be inferior to many of his contemporaries, his compelling theatrical histrionics contributed to his distinctive presence on the stage. Scotti debuted in his native Naples in 1889 and made his American debut at the Metropolitan Opera in 1899 as Don Giovanni. Scotti remained at the Met until 1933, when he returned, impoverished, to Naples.
