About the Event

“La Bartoli” has already sung the praises of many great predecessors — she paid homage to the legendary Maria Malibran and slipped into the skin of 18th century castrati. This time she takes on Orpheus, the god of singing, in Gluck's “Orfeo ed Euridice”. And shows what is important in singing: with his “reform opera” from the 1760s, Gluck struggled to create emotionally credible music theater that did not exhaust itself in dazzling virtuosity and formulaic musical numbers. Cecilia Bartoli, the great coloratura singer, puts her entire art at the service of music that does not want to dazzle, but to touch: a wonderful task for a goddess of song.

Artists

Mezzo-soprano: Cecilia Bartoli

The Italian mezzo‐soprano Cecilia Bartoli is best‐known for her Mozart and Rossini roles as well as for her performances of lesser‐known Baroque and Classical music. Bartoli is a coloratura mezzo‐soprano with a highly individual timbre which she uses to great vocal and dramatic effect. She is one of the most popular (and one of the top‐selling) opera singers of our time.
