Cecilia Bartoli is unique. With her masterful vocal control, intensity of feeling and exciting repertoire, she has been a top international star for more than 30 years. She offers the best of the world of opera: powerful emotion with drama and theatrical immediacy – and of course, an impressive voice. This has made her one of the best-selling classical artists of our time.
Her Konserthuset Stockholm debut was in 1998 and she performed in Scandinavia and at Konserthuset most recently in 2015, at which time a critic concluded: “Cecilia Bartoli has created her own niche, where vocal gold is extracted from the archives and used for the personal, extremely powerful and precise coloratura that is the Italian singer’s specialty.” At this performance, her seventh at Konserthuset, she will be presenting music from the nineteenth century.
Joining her is her own masterful baroque ensemble, Les Musiciens du Prince-Monaco, which is associated with the opera in Monaco. Founded in 2016 under Cecilia Bartoli’s artistic leadership, the ensemble comprises specialised musicians on period instruments and is led by the prominent French-Argentinian violinist Andrés Gabetta.
