“Pareto studied in Milan with Vidal, and made her stage début in Barcelona, as Micaela in 1906, and in Madrid, in 1908, as Amina in LA SONNAMBULA, one of her greatest rôles. She made her début at La Scala, as Gilda in 1914. She appeared in Paris, London, Vienna, and St Petersburg, and had a long association with the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, where she sang from 1909 until 1927, also appearing in Chicago in 1921. Her best rôles included Rosina, Norina, Lucia, Juliette, Ophélie, Leila, and Lakmé. She retired in Naples, with her husband composer Gabriele Sibella. Pareto was one the great coloratura sopranos of the ‘Spanish School’ of the early 20th century, which includes Maria Barrientos, Maria Galvany and Mercedes Capsir.”
