He was the best tenor since the great Caruso but during his life performed only three operas, preferring acting in musicals. He received high fees for his performances but would turn down a contract so he could sing lullabies over the phone to an unknown dying girl. Domingo, Carreras and Pavarotti praised his majestic voice but his greatest admirer was Elvis Presley! While Mario Lanzas life was full of contradictions, his strange death did not help explain any of them.
