        What a loss to us, opera lovers. Iodice was able to bring, in his book, Mario Lanza's persona to life was tragic like the ones you read in opera librettos, that is, in operatic proportions.I loved this book. I also loved the fact that it was printed in two ent book. Very informative/5(14).   Robinson also co-wrote a book with Raymond Strait, “Mario Lanza, His Tragic Life.” Robinson was born in New York City on March 9, , one of five sons in an athletics-minded family. His father.

        The moment I placed the book down after spending two days reading it, I felt as if I re-lived the short tragic life of Mario Lanza. If any Hollywood writer was ever hired to do a screen play for a movie on Mario's life, all he would have to do was read Armando Cesari's book and proceed from there/5(27).   Mario Lanza: A Life in Pictures. Mario Lanza: A Life in Pictures is a stunning collection of photographs and illustrations that captures the fabulous and tumultuous times of the greatest romantic tenor of the twentieth century.. Compiled by acclaimed Lanza biographer Derek Mannering and drawing on exclusive photographs from the tenor’s closest friend, Terry Robinson, the book .

      At time repetative but that was Lanza's life - repeat abuse of his awful juvenile demonds, with very little encouragment from the people who he needed the most. The greatest voice of /5.   to revere the same man (Terry Robinson) whose tabloid-like book "Lanza: His Tragic Life" is the main source -- among other unfortunate things -- of the absurd and much-repeated allegations that Mario Lanza's death was the result of a Mafia hit. But the impression I have always had of Ellisa is that of a loving daughter and a decent person.

Lanza: His Tragic Life Hardcover – January 1, by Raymond Strait (Author)/5(17). Lanza died quite young and lived a life of excess--although the book alludes to a more mysterious death due to some underworld connections.

Sadly, his wife died five months later leaving four young children. From what I understand only one--a daughter--has survived. A tragic family all the way around/5. His early death was a tragic loss for his family as well as for his legion of his tragic life book who respected and enjoyed his music.

We cannot judge him or the people in his life who used and abused him. I shall always remember his music and the great gift he shared so generously and the zest for life he so obviously had/5.

Maestro Cesari has done his tragic life book wonderful service to all those who search for truth about the exciting, magnificent and tragic life of Mario Lanza. His marvelously researched work is splendid and is meticulously documented with facts and figures. What emerges is a clear separation of the man, the myth and the artist/5(47).

More pathetic than tragic. Co-authored by Lanza's exercise-coach/confidant, this is a sketchy star bio devoid of musical savvy and heavy on Mario's lurid decline. Early years are barely touched on (you'll learn more about Lanza at Tanglewood, and about his musicianship, in Boris Goldovsky's memoirs)--as Mario zooms from Philadelphia boyhood to discovery in army.

Index; Discography; Photos; DJ. Final Copy. - CRITIC REVIEW: “To this day, the Three Tenors cite Lanza as an inspiration for their own careers on the classical stage. Lanza's recordings for RCA sold in the millions, and he remains the crossover. He began researching Lanza's life in earnest in the late s, interviewing scores of the tenor's associates, and discovering in the process that, as he puts it, "The truth about the artist and the man [was] far less sensational, but by no means less interesting and a great deal more tragic than one might suspect.".

This ridiculous but enduring myth, suggested but never substantiated in Terry Robinson’s and Raymond Strait’s book Lanza: His Tragic Life, was also promoted by Hollywood columnist James Bacon. The story goes that a Mafia ‘hit’ was carried out on Lanza while he was undergoing treatment in the Valle Giulia clinic in Rome.

Compiled by acclaimed Lanza biographer Derek Mannering and drawing on exclusive photographs from the tenor's closest friend, Terry Robinson, the book offers an unrivalled pictorial history of the tenor's extraordinary life and career, from his childhood in Philadelphia, his first tentative steps towards a career in opera, the unexpected about-turn that led to his glory days 5/5(4).

Lanza used a Bushmaster Model XME2S rifle, a type of AR semiautomatic rifle, in the Sandy Hook shooting. An Izhmash Saiga, 12 gauge semi-automatic shotgun was found in his car.
