      Mario Lanza, tenor; RCA Victor Orchestra / Constantine Callinicos

      In conjunction with Turner Classic Movies Network, Masterworks presents a new 2-CD set celebrating Mario Lanza’s extraordinary career. It was from the celebrated soundstages of MGM that the golden voice of Mario Lanza rang out to the world. Opera may have been Lanza’s first calling, but Hollywood saw to it that he became an international star. The full range of Lanza’s vocal brilliance is displayed on this compilation of popular ballads, opera arias, classic show tunes and jewels from the Great American Songbook that includes six previously unreleased recordings.
