More than twenty years in the making, Gigli: The Master Tenor by Colin Bain (Barry R. Ashpole, General Editor) promises to be a definitive biography of Beniamino Gigli (1890-1957), offering a detailed, intimate portrait of the singer and his extraordinary career. Based on thousands of official and personal documents secured by the author as well as interviews with opera stars, musicians, teachers, and loved ones—including extensive interviews with members of the Gigli family and household—the new biography spans a lifetime, opening and closing in Recanati, Italy, ancestral home of the Gigli family where Beniamino reportedly sang as soon as he learned to talk.
