Description

One of opera’s most treasured artists, the Italian mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli returns to LA Opera for a one-night-only concert, Monday, October 10 at 7:30 PM, at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. The Grammy-winning singer will perform with the Orchestra La Scintilla of Zurich Opera in a program that includes a selection of baroque arias by Handel, Caldara and Scarlatti featured on her latest recording, Opera Prohibita.

Cecilia Bartoli made a much-lauded recital debut with LA Opera in 2004. A supreme champion of early music, Ms. Bartoli has brought the works of Vivaldi, Gluck and Handel to an unprecedented number of music lovers with her breathtaking artistry – winning a host of international honors in the process. Her previous U.S. appearances have thrilled audiences and critics alike, prompting Opera News to call her “one of the greatest singers of our time” and Daily Variety to write, “The voice is one of the Almighty’s major miracles.”

Immediately following the performance, audience members will have the opportunity to meet Ms. Bartoli at a CD signing in the lobby of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Her latest recordings are available for sale in the Opera Shop located in the lobby.
