Luigi Mancinelli


(1848-1921), Italian composer and conductor from Orvieto, made his Met debut in the Faust that re-opened the house on November 27, 1893, after the fire the preceding season. During nine seasons as leading conductor, he led the first Met performances of Werther, Falstaff, Samson et Dalila, Le Cid, The Magic Flute, Bohème, Tosca, and Ernani, as well as his own opera Ero e Leandro. During 1902-03, his last Met season, Mancinelli led Aida, Ballo, Barbiere, Bohème, Don Giovanni, Ernani, Ero e Leandro, Faust, The Magic Flute, Nozze di Figaro, Otello, Rigoletto, Roméo, Tosca, Traviata, Trovatore, the Rossini Stabat Mater, and the Verdi Requiem. For conducting seventy-one performances, including five concerts, Mancinelli received $10,560, plus one first-class passage, and a stateroom on the train when touring.
