The Piangi Shrine

This site is devoted to the nicest character in Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Phantom of the Opera." Ubaldo Piangi is the principal tenor at the Paris Opera House and also, according to most, the beautiful diva Carlotta's love interest.

Here's what an audition notice says about the character:

Ubaldo Piangi: Late 30’s – 50’s. The opera’s leading tenor, Italian style singer, sings to high C. Requires opera training.
