Titta Ruffo (1877–1953) was an Italian baritone who performed at the Monte-Carlo Opera on many occasions. His first performance on the Monegasque stage was in Rossini’s The Barber of Seville in 1907. He played Figaro, one of his signature roles. Blessed with a voice of exceptional power, he sang at the official opening of the Oceanographic Museum in Monaco from a raft in the middle of the harbour.
