"Nature would appear to dictate, that in general, tenors are short and portly, baritones are of medium height and stocky, and basses tall and rather spare. In the case of Cesare Siepi he was not only very tall but remarkably good-looking and possessed of a magnificent physique. He was the epitome of the rakish Don Giovanni that became one of his greatest roles, and never less than impressive in the dignified and sometime dominating characters allotted to the operatic bass."
