Cesare Valletti "sang regularly at La Scala, as Nemorino, Almaviva, Filipeto (I quatro rusteghi), Lindoro and other tenore di grazia roles. In 1953 he made his American début at San Francisco as Werther, and from 1953 to 1962 sang regularly at the Metropolitan, where he was especially admired as Don Ottavio (a role he also sang at the Salzburg Festival), Des Grieux, Ferrando and Ernesto. He returned to Covent Garden in 1958 to sing Alfredo opposite Callas, a performance which was recorded live. He also recorded Lindoro, Almaviva, Ernesto and Fenton, all of which display his exemplary, assured tenor technique and refined sense of style." Harold Rosenthal and Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online.
