His first performance at Madrid's Teatro Real on 14th November 1899 with Rigoletto was a great hit. His fame led him to sing at the Covent Garden in 1905, where he made his debut with La Traviata and at the Metropolitan Opera House in 1910 with Rigoletto in which, as Duca di Mantova, he was the rival of famous tenor Enrico Caruso. He sang several seasons at Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires and in the United States.

He performed in the best Italian theatres, especially as Hamlet, one of his favourite roles. In 1883 he made his debut at Madrid's Teatro Real as Nevers in Gli Ugonotti.
