ADDIO MIO DOLCE AMOR IL MAESTRO PUCCINI E L'OPERA ITALIANA

ANNA PIROZZI

ANNA PIROZZI
VOCAL VIRTUOSITY

This Neapolitan soprano is one of the greatest voices in Italian opera of our times. Her dramatic coloratura register has earned her the opportunity to play the major roles of Verdi, although her repertoire ranges from bel canto to verismo. A chameleon singer with an impressive repertoire, her career began to shine at the Salzburg Festival, where she performed Abigaille from Nabucco under the direction of Riccardo Muti in 2013 – an overwhelming success that soon put her on the world's biggest stages. Recently, Anna Pirozzi was awarded the Puccini Prize of the Torre de Lago Puccini Festival, which has awarded the prize to such important names as Maria Callas, Luciano Pavarotti, Renata Tebaldi and Birgit Nilsson. With the concert Addio mio dolce amor. Il maestro Puccini e l'opera italiana, Pirozzi returns to the Peralada Festival after her impressive debut in 2022 playing one of her go-to roles, that of the former slave who appears to be the daughter of Nabucco. This time, together with a string quartet and accompanied by Sophia Muñoz on the piano, the soprano will perform a programme of opera arias by Donizetti, Bellini, Verdi and Leoncavallo, but especially by the master of emotions, Giacomo Puccini.
