A great expectation filled the Havana National Theatre on the night of June 13, 1920. Enrico Caruso, the legendary tenor, was to sing Aida. Rumor had it that the Great Caruso was suffering from a strange disease and was being hounded by the gangsters of the Mano Negra. A bomb exploded in the theatre at the beginning of the show, and Caruso ran out, dressed as Radames, and disappeared in the streets of Havana. The tenor emerged from the shadows a few days later, but nobody knew where and with whom he had been, except for Aida Petrinera Cheng. She zealously keeps the secret until she finally tells her daughter in 1952. At long last light will be shed upon one of the bel canto's best-kept secrets.
