LEARN ABOUT UMBERTO GIORDANO

Umberto Menotti Maria Giordano (28 August 1867 – 12 November 1948) was an Italian operatic composer.

Born in Foggia, located in southern Italy, Giordano studied at the Conservatoire of Naple under the tutelage of Paolo Serrao.  In his early years, Giordano wrote the opera Marina for a competition held by music publishers who were in search for the best one-act opera. Giordano was the youngest contestant, placing 6th for his entry of Marina. The work generated enough interest to commission the staging of an opera based on the work during the 1891-92 season and was performed at the Teatro Argentina in Rome. Years later, it was re-written as Il Voto in an attempt to raise interest in the work again, where it successfully played in Prague, Berlin, and Vienna.

Giordano's best-known work, Andrea Chenier (1896) is still performed today. Although his later works are much less known, they do occasionally see revivals. One of his later works, La cena delle beffe is recognized by musicologists and critics.

In his home town of Foggia, the most widely known theater is dedicated to Umberto Giordano. There you will also find a square dedicated to him with several statues representing his most famous works. He died in Milan, Italy and lived to be 81.
