Cecilia Bartoli outstanding at the Royal Theater

Cecilia Bartoli

Baroque lovers are celebrating with the programming that the Teatro Real has prepared for this spring. Cecilia Bartoli Y Franco Fagioli in its cycle "Voices of the Real", to prepare the premiere of Rodelinda, the work of Händel who comes to this theater for the first time.

Cecilia Bartoli arrived accompanied by the always original Sergio Ciomei the piano. “A journey through 400 Years of Italian Music” is the name of the tour that the Italian mezzo-soprano is doing these days in Spain. It is not easy to make a selection of 20 works from such a long period, far from having the ability to interpret such a varied repertoire. But Cecilia Bartoli has the power of versatility, among others.

He has shown it once again this Sunday at the Teatro Real, offering a long-distance recital that had as protagonists Giulio Caccini (1551-1618), Alessandro Scarlatti (1660-1725), Antonio Caldara (1670-1736), Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741), georg Friedrich Handel (1685-1759), Mozart (1756-1791), Gioacchino Rossini (1792-1868),
Vincenzo Bellini (1801-1835), Gaetano Donizetti (1797-1848), Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924), Francesco Paolo Tosti (1846-1916), Stefano Donaudy (1879-1925), IT'S AT. Mario (1884-1961), Salvatore Gambardella (1871-1913), Ernesto de Curtis (1875-1937) and the very Domenico Modugno (1928-1994).

La Bartoli tackles this varied program, giving each work the character and personality that corresponds to it.. And he does it like always, masterfully and without apparent effort. Delve like nobody else in dramatic arias and intensify brave ones, in that baroque repertoire that he knows perfectly.

Cecilia Bartoli's qualities are not only vocal. The uniqueness in his way of interpreting, her ability to transmit and communicate with an audience that adores her and whom she kept in effervescent tension during the two hours that the recital lasted, They are skills that the Roman singer manages with the same dexterity as coloratura or some very pianísimos that dazzled everyone.

The audience asked him to see her in a complete opera. Hope so.
