The Italian tenor Giuseppe Di Stefano (born 24 July 1921) is a famous opera singer whose career spanned from the late 1940s to the early 1970s. He is best known for his long association with Maria Callas, with whom he performed and recorded many times and with whom he was briefly romantically involved.
Di Stefano made his operatic debut in 1946 in Reggio Emilia as Des Grieux in Massenet's Manon, therole with which he made his La Scala debut the following year. He made his debut with the Metropolitan Opera in 1948 as the Duke in Rigoletto, and he went to perform regularly in New York for many years. In 1957, Di Stefano made his British debut at the Edinburgh Festival as Nemorino in L'Elisir d'Amore and his Royal Opera House, Covent Garden debut in 1961 as Cavaradossi in Tosca.
