Aristide Masiero

, "second tenor comprimario," sang with the Met two seasons, 1900-01 under the management of Maurice Grau, and 1903-04 under Heinrich Conried. His first season began in San Francisco on November 9, 1900, as Parpignol in Bohème, continued with his New York debut as Benvoglio in Roméo on December 18, and concluded with another tour performance, as Ruiz in Trovatore in Chicago. In between, he also sang the messenger in Aida, Normanno in Lucia, De Cossé and De Tavannes in Huguenots, Gaston in Traviata, Borsa in Rigoletto, Wagner and Nereus in Mefistofele, Don Arias in Le Cid, Vogelgesang in Meistersinger, the Usher in Africana, and Beppe in Pagliacci. For a six-month season of seventy-four performances, he was paid $865.27 and one second-class passage to Europe, port to port. Masiero also appeared in four Covent Garden summer seasons between 1901 and 1904.
