Roberto Stagno (Italian pronunciation: [roˈbɛrto ˈstaɲɲo]; 18 October 1840 [some sources give 1836 as his birth year] – 26 April 1897) was a prominent Italian opera tenor.
He became an important interpreter of verismo music when it burst on to the operatic scene during the 1890s; but he also possessed an agile bel canto technique which he employed in operas dating from earlier periods.
In 1890, he created the pivotal verismo role of Turiddu.
