“Protti was born in Cremona. He studied in Parma, and made his début in Pesaro, as Figaro, in 1948. He made his La Scala début in 1950, as Amonasro, and sang there for many years. He sang widely in Italy and Europe in the standard Italian repertory, earning a reputation for being ‘one of the most reliable baritones in the business’. He made a belated début at the Metropolitan Opera, as Rigoletto, at age 65. He was particularly appreciated in Verdi rôles, especially Rigoletto, his greatest rôle, but also as Alfio, Tonio, Gérard, Scarpia, etc.”
