    Birth name was Dario Corelli
    Sang in 'Carmen,' 'Tosca,' 'Norma,' 'Turandot' and 'Il Trovatore'
    He lisped.
    His voice is better remembered for its volume than its beauty.
    During a performance, he once bit a costar because she held a high note longer than he did.
    He would carry a stopwatch onstage so he could tell everyone how long his ovations had lasted.
    He once punched out his own car window in a rage because another car had passed him.
    He damaged his voice by over singing and had to retire early.
    His voice was described as 'a voice of thunder and lightning, fire and blood.'
    He was known for his sex appeal, which isn't too common in opera singers.
    He was self-taught.
    He suffered from stage fright.
    A bass once tried to kill him with a sword in a rehearsal.
    His wife would wait in his dressing room with a long list of criticisms about every performance.
