The Italian soprano, probably the best Donna Anna of today and the most requested, points: “Anna is one of the most refined Mozartian characters. There is something miraculous in every pulse, as well as the germ of so many other characters in the belcanto. His recitatives and arias are of a perfection and a neatness, that is unmatched in the history of music. They seem to anticipate the melody and phrasing of successive masterpieces such as Anna Bolena, Rule e I puritani. To understand, precisely, in depth to Anna - continues Remigio -, I have also sung the role of Donna Elvira in some productions of Don Giovanni and I'll sing it again at La Fenice in Venice in the fall. They are two very different characters: Elvira is more dramatic, while Anna, instead, is more enigmatic and sinuous. Y, so, they complement, in some way; one is a mirror of the other. "
