I just read the sad news of the passing of one of the greatest Tenors of history of Opera…. the wonderful legendary Swedish Tenor Nicolai Gedda.
The world of Opera lost one of the most beautiful voices ever and one of the most charismatic Tenors ever.
Nicola Gedda was a true legend and a treasure of history of Opera.
He brought us so many joys with his beautiful voice and performances.
Nicolai Gedda passed away on January but the family decided to confirm the sad news until now.
Nicolai Gedda had one of the greatest and most versatile opera careers ever in the repertoire for a Tenor. I remember listening to his wonderful
Faust, Hoffmann, King Riccardo/Gustavo, Alfredo, Rodolfo, his extraordinary Lensky, Nemorino, Duke of Mantua, Don Ottavio, etc, etc in different recordings and I remember loving each different performance and singing.
Nicolai Gedda always performed so beautifully the most difficult arias for a Tenor and his voice always brought happiness to my heart.
The role Chapelou in Adolphe Adam’s “Le postillon de Lonjumeau” is one of my personal favorites and I will post a video down below so that you can all enjoy Nicolai Gedda’s beautiful voice.
Rest in peace, Nicolai Gedda and thank you, thank you for the many beautiful performances that you gave to us…. your voice will always live in our hearts
Rest in peace, Nicolai Gedda.
