This is a non-profit homepage created as a post mortem tribute to the legendary Neapolitan singer and opera star Enrico Caruso who, with his voice, empathy, charisma and grammaphone recordings, contributed to making opera known and loved in the world in the beginning of the past century.
When I say non-profit website, that's exactly what this is: No banners, no selling, no adds, no fees, no links that I make money on when clicked, no hidden agenda.
So why on earth spend hundred of hours, as I have, developing this site? Very simple... I want to share the beauty of Caruso's singing with others! His singing and personality touches my heart.

"I treasure Caruso's records as the greatest and finest lesson any singer could possibly have. None of us living tenors could possibly stand any comparison with that voice. It makes me realise how little I have achieved." [From Richard Tauber, by Diana Napier Tauber, London 1949, page 61-2] On 28 May 1938, the eve of sailing from Naples for his Australian tour, Tauber visited Caruso's Mausoleum to pay his respects to the great tenor.
