a new Sesto for sunday

Continuing with mezzo/contralto in trousers (i can make this a series!), here is Lucia Cirillo as Sesto. She does some reallly nice things to the lines/phrase, i would like to see her in this!

That poster didn’t allow viewing embed videos so you’ll have to view on tube. I really love her singing Mozart, in particular this aria (Ah, perfido, which opera? La Finta?), veeeeeery sensitive, i’d very much like to see her more in Mozart!!

And of course, per usual, we would like to learn a little bit how she got into singing… a professional classical guitarist before switching to singing at 20! From this cool short interview.

Edit2: oh, hihi, i reread, it’s Beethoven! which opera is it? Fidelio? whatever it is, i’d like to hear her live singing it, and the aria (Ah, perfido).
