Premio Internazionale Giuseppe Di Stefano

Di Stefano International Award

Ancient Theatre, Sunday 2nd August 2020 @ 9.3 pm


Giuseppe Di Stefano (24 July 1921 – 3 March 2008) was an Italian operatic tenor, one of the most beautiful voices who sang professionally from the mid 1940s until the early 1990s. He was known as the “Golden voice” or “The most beautiful voice”, as the true successor of Beniamino Gigli. Luciano Pavarotti said he modeled himself after Di Stefano. In an interview Pavarotti said “Di Stefano is my idol. There is a solar voice…It was the most incredible, open voice you could hear. The musicality of di Stefano is as natural and beautiful as the voice is phenomenal“. Di Stefano was also the tenor who most inspired José Carreras.

This year again, in the incomparable setting of our Ancient Theatre, there will be a memorable evening during which some of the greatest artists of the lyrical and cultural world will honor the great Sicilian tenor and receive the Giuseppe Di Stefano International Award.
