Nicola Vaccai - Bel Canto Composer, Voice Teacher

Interesting is that a significant pedagogue of the BEL CANTO ERA, is still very relevant today:
Nicola Vaccai, a bel canto composer of the early 1800's (his opera Giulietta e Romeo, a big influence to Bellini’s operas, Il Pirata and Norma), is now, as composer, less known, but his approach to the bel canto art of singing still remains, as vocal textbook, selectively influential among today’s international voice teachers and voice students.
