Carlo Dani


, Italian lyric tenor, made his Metropolitan Opera debut as the Duke in Rigoletto, on December 5, 1902, opposite Marcella Sembrich as Gilda, Louise Homer as Maddalena, Antonio Scotti in the title role, and Marcel Journet as Sparafucile. His contract required him to be available for a four-month season. He received $4,104, having sung fourteen times in opera, five Sunday-night concerts, and two outside engagements (which were controlled by his Met contract). In addition to the Duke, his roles were Alfredo, Canio, Rodolfo, and Ernesto in Don Pasquale. Dani sang at the Met only during 1902-03. The next season, his roles, except Ernesto, were assumed by Enrico Caruso.
