BACKSTORY: His Grandfather, opera singer Giuseppe Monaco immigrated to the USA in the early 1900’s after serving in the Italian Army in Africa as a bugler. He then served in the US Military during WWI as a bugler as well but unfortunately received a dose of Mustard Gas in France. After returning to the New York City settling in the Bronx he performed at The Metropolitan Opera House in NYC and did sing in the choir behind world famous Enrico Caruso. He was lead tenor on many productions in the city but ended up living the last 25 years of his life in a Veterans Hospital in NYC and was unable to continue to pursue his career. This adds a great deal of personal importance to this show for Rico and it should open up Italy/Europe for more shows in the coming years.
A documentary film about Rico’s his Italy show and trip will be released in the coming months!
