About

Cecilia Bartoli makes her long-anticipated debut in the role of Desdemona in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s new production of Rossini’s Otello for the Zurich Opera House.

Rossini’s unusual scoring of the drama calls for three tenor supporting roles – here sung to universal acclaim by long-standing Bartoli collaborators John Osborn and Javier Camarena and newcomer Edgardo Rocha.

Bartoli’s dramatic command and vocal presence dominate the stage and reveal her artistry to be entering a rich new stage of development.

Cast:
- John Osborn (Otello)
- Cecilia Bartoli (Desdemona)
- Peter Kálmán (Elmiro)
- Javier Camarena (Rodrigo/Lucio)
- Edgardo Rocha (Iago)
- Liliana Nikiteanu (Emilia)

Stage Direction: Moshe Leiser & Patrice Caurier

Ms Bartoli…displayed…the dazzling strengths that have characterized her work since the beginning. It is obvious that she has plotted out every musical and dramatic moment: every subtle diminuendo, every gesture. But her charm — those twinkling eyes, those powerful low notes — is such that the effect doesn’t feel overly calculated.” – The New York Times
