Opera Singer. She was one of the leading coloratura sopranos of the 20th Century's Golden Age of Singing. She was "discovered" by Mascagni, sang opposite Caruso, Gigli and many others before a throat tumor forced her retirement from singing in the 1930's. Her voice on 78 rpm recordings served as a role model for the young coloratura soprano Beverly Sills. Galli-Curci studied voice with Enrico Rosati and Estelle Liebling.
