Mario Lanza Facts
Although greatly admired by generations of opera stars, including Plácido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, José Carreras and Roberto Alagna, Lanza himself only performed two operatic roles on stage - Fenton in Nicolai's "The Merry Wives of Windsor" at the Berkshire Festival in Tanglewood, and Lt. Pinkerton in Giacomo Puccini's "Madama Butterfly" for the New Orleans Opera Association. He received rave reviews for both efforts, with Noel Straus of the New York Times hailing him as having "few equals among tenors of the day in terms of quality, warmth and power." He sang over 150 concerts in his brief career, and at the time of his death had agreed to appear in the 1960-61 Rome Opera season as Canio in "Pagliacci".

Legally changed his name from Alfredo Cocozza to Mario Lanza in 1948, just before he signed with MGM.

His wife, Betty, was the sister of Lanza's army buddy. He was interested in her picture, and the buddy introduced them.
