Italian-Norwegian composer and pianist Antonio Bibalo was born on 18 January 1922 in Trieste, where he studied at the Conservatory. His early life was disturbed by World War II, but later he studied with Elisabeth Lutyens in London and then settled in Norway.
His 1962 opera The Smile at the Foot of the Ladder brought him to international attention when it was first produced in Hamburg in 1965. He wrote several more operas, two piano concertos and two symphonies, plus two wind quintets and a suite and several sonatas for piano.
Antonio Bibalo died in Larvik on 20 June 2008, aged eighty-six.
