What’s going on with Cecilia

In the fall Cecilia Bartoli will return as the early nineteenth century artist some of us were hoping for. Her new concert series is called “La Rivoluzione romantica” and will start on October 22 in Zurich.

Then in April of 2008 she will sing La Sonnambula in Baden-Baden.

And in May she is singing Clari, an opera in three acts by Jacques François Élie Fromental Halévy in Zurich. She is credited with discovering the autograph score for this opera which hasn’t been seen since 1828. The part was written for Malibran. Did I guess Halévy? No, I did not!!

She likes to keep us guessing.
