An international opera star once played ZORBA?

Giorgio Tozzi, who sang countless roles at both La Scala and the Metropolitan Opera, played ZORBA at Milwaukee's Melody Top Theater from August 5 to 17, 1975. Mostly known by musical theater aficionados for singing the role of Emile de Becque in the 1958 movie version of SOUTH PACIFIC, he also played the same part opposite both Mary Martin (Los Angeles Civic Light Opera) and Florence Henderson (Music Theater of Lincoln Center). His other stage credits include MAN OF LA MANCHA, FANNY, MILK AND HONEY, THE MOST HAPPY FELLA and CALL ME MADAM. Please visit my website to view production and "backstage" photos from ZORBA, along with newspaper reviews and a full cast list. At the bottom of the page there is an audio clip from this production of ZORBA: Jana Robbins as the Leader of the Chorus singing "Life Is." If my site records 1,000 visits in the first 24 hours, I will post another audio clip: "That's a Beginning/Why Can't I Speak?" sung by Ed Evanko and Didi Hitt. And if a record number of 2,000 visits is made, I will release a final audio clip of Giorgio Tozzi and Zoya Leporska singing "Bouboulina," the second-act song written for John Raitt and Barbara Baxley to perform in the first national tour of ZORBA back in 1970.
