He was sent to study music at the Conservatorio di San Pietro a Majella in Naples , where he quickly demonstrated his diligence and precocious talent, earning a gold medal from the Ministero della Pubblica Istruzione Department of Education. This melodramma idilico was performed in the college theatre, and it attracted the attention of the publishers Sonzogno , who arranged for a second production, in Florence , in With a libretto by Angelo Zanardini , La Tilda had a successful first performance in April at the Teatro Pagliano in Florence, and after performances in a number of Italian theatres, it arrived at the Vienna Exhibition on 24 September , alongside other works from the firm of Sonzogno.

The composer never showed much sympathy for this work, the subject of which he reluctantly agreed to set to music in order to please Sonzogno and to avoid throwing away a rare professional opportunity. The loss of the orchestral score has prevented the modern revival of this work, whose fresh and catchy melodies can nevertheless be discovered in the transcription for voice and piano. In the score which we hear today, it is hard to find a single bar which is completely unchanged from the original.

The revised opera was however still not successful, apart from a brief period in the s when it benefited from political support which the composer established through personal contact with Mussolini.

Adriana Lecouvreur is the opera of Cilea which is best known to international audiences today, and it reveals the spontaneity of a melodic style drawn from the Neapolitan school combined with harmonic and tonal shading influenced by French composers such as Massenet.

At the piano Cilea accompanied none too elegantly Caruso in a recording of a part of the duet Non piu nobile and made another recording with the baritone De Luca at the same time November The opera was withdrawn after only two performances; and the failure of this work, even though the composer attempted a later revision, was enough to drive him to abandon the operatic stage for good. Some sources also refer to an opera of , completed but never performed, called Il matrimonio selvaggio, but no copy of this survives and Cilea himself made no mention of it in his volumes of memoirs "Ricordi".

Nevertheless, he continued to compose chamber music, and some orchestral music. In he produced a symphonic poem in honour of Giuseppe Verdi with verses by Sem Benelli , which was first performed at the Teatro Carlo Felice in Genoa. After this he devoted himself principally to education and became director of the Conservatorio Vincenzo Bellini in Palermo , and then at his alma mater , the Conservatorio San Pietro a Maiella in Naples, where he ended his teaching career in Among his last musical activities was his championship of the soprano Magda Olivero — , whose performances in the title role of Adriana Lecouvreur he especially admired.

Cilea died on 20 November in Varazze , a town near Savona in Liguria which offered him honorary citizenship and where he spent the last years of his life.

The Conservatorio di Musica and the Teatro Communale of Reggio di Calabria were renamed in his memory, and his native town of Palmi built a mausoleum in his memory, decorated with scenes from the myth of Orpheus.
