Enrico Caruso: A Modern Media Star, lecture by Giuliana Muscio

Thursday, Mar 21, 2013 6:00p

Enrico Caruso became the recording industry's first megastar when his 1904 "Vesti la giubba" sold 1 million copies. Film historian Giuliana Muscio discusses the way Caruso took advantage of various forms of publicity that transformed him into a modern media celebrity. The Metropolitan Opera's internationally renowned tenor, he bridged opera listeners and popular-music audiences; toured extensively and became a global icon of NY culture; and appeared in silent cinema, advertising, and the press.
