The Diva bursts the collar

Opera: Big Drama, on and behind the stage. Right now in Milan, where the mezzo-soprano (and Choice from Zurich), Cecilia Bartoli has canceled her upcoming appearances. The reason, a letter from Bartoli's husband, the Zurich-based singer Oliver Widmer, on Scala-Director Alexander Pereira announced: "Cecilia is not shocked by the decision of the Scala Supervisory Board, to confirm You in office." Under these conditions, you think wa would not be possible to continue with the Scala to cooperate. The letter was quoted in the "Corriere della Sera", to your audience, the Bartoli was via Facebook.

The shock among the Fans is a large, mixed partly with admiration for their unconditional loyalty to Pereira and, in part, with a lack of understanding. Finally, the Aficionados from the cancellation, have bought on a night out with the Bartoli was desperately and expensive cards. The effect on the Scala-Upper, however, is uncertain. And Pereira has to stay anyway by 2020. You don't punish your long-standing patron?

18-Second television

But you can't help it. In an Interview about the Zurich Opera house Bartoli said recently: "The people who work here, burn this house, identify with him to the point of self-sacrifice." For something to burn up to self-abandonment – that is the core of the best operas. Bartoli lives on and behind the stage.

Cecilia Bartoli was born 53 years ago in Rome, not just in Opera, but hardly far from it. Her parents both were Opera singers. The mother was for their children and sang in the choir. With 18 Bartoli in a television talent show Second, sang soon her first major role in Rome. And, again, television played fate: The conductors Daniel Barenboim and Herbert von Karajan were in another appearance on the character of strong young talent to the attention of. With your voice, Bartoli can cover a wide Repertoire. Your true attraction to the Opera-loving masses, but techno is beyond the description.

loyalty is in Opera the exception rather

your audience won with the core repertoire of Opera: Mozart and Rossini. But instead of just success secure Primadonna-exploit roles, uses Bartoli their star power to promote less well-Known, in the spotlight. With recordings of forgotten Baroque arias, they beat sales records.

exactly 30 years Ago, Bartoli appeared for the first Time in Zurich. Really closely the relationship of the Opera house was acquired, as Pereira 1991, the artistic Director. Bartoli was one of the young talents of the Austrian promoted, he listened to but also. As he headed the Salzburg festival, she took over the directorship of the next festival of Pentecost.

Since 2013, Pereira is now the Director of the Opera in Milan. The Scala is a notoriously conservative, to the Italian Opera that is committed to house. Bartoli was supposed to sing in "Giulio Cesare" by Georg Friedrich Handel, the, Cleopatra: the Egyptian Princess who falls in love with Julius Caesar, Elevator, for him, everything is ready, and by him to the Queen is made. The rare case of an Opera-a Happy ending, in which unconditional loyalty is paying off.
