Arturo Vigna


(1863-?), Italian conductor from Turin, led performances in Monte Carlo, Berlin, and at Milan's La Scala before coming to New York for his Met debut with Rigoletto, November 23, 1903 -- the same performance that introduced Enrico Caruso. During his first season, he was paid $4,176 for a three-month engagement during which he also conducted Bohème, Aida, Tosca, Cavalleria and Pagliacci, Traviata, Barbiere, Lucia, the Met premiere of Elisir, and Sunday-night concerts. In later seasons, Vigna presided over the house premieres of Lucrezia Borgia, Fedora, Damnation de Faust, Manon Lescaut, and Madama Butterfly. 1906-07 was his fourth and last season.
