• Short Summary

    Operatic tenor Angelo Minghetti sings the haunting ballad 'Nina'.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Now Pathetone has pleasure in presenting - The World-Famous Operatic Tenor - Angelo Minghetti - from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Le Scala, Milan etc."

    Lengthy intertitles tell of the Italian composer, Pergolesi, who wrote the ballad,'Nina' two centuries ago for the character of a painter, singing to his model who has fallen asleep.

    London (probably Pathe studio).

    Various shots of Angelo Minghetti singing 'Nina'. He is dressed as a painter and is holding a palate. A woman (presumably 'Nina') is asleep on the window seat; the set is dressed as an artist's studio.
