About

Appearing here in her début solo album, Italian lyric soprano Maria Luigia Borsi has been acclaimed for her ‘grace, beauty, animation and variety’ (The Sunday Times). Her Willow Song from Verdi’s Otello has been described as ‘gorgeously sung’ (Opera News) and her role in Puccini’s Turandot as demonstrating ‘extraordinary communicative skills’ (Opera Magazine).

This programme includes some of the most moving and dramatic arias from Italian opera, including the tragic heartbreak of Madama Butterfly and the shimmering beauty of Catalani’s 'Ebben? Ne andrò lontana' from La Wally.

Hailed by critics worldwide for her vocal dynamism and interpretive prowess, Maria Luigia Borsi has forged a career that has taken her throughout Europe, Asia and the United States. Ms Borsi began her career as Liù in Puccini’s Turandot at the Teatro alla Scala. She made her Venetian début for the historic reopening of the Gran Teatro La Fenice singing the role of Violetta in Verdi’s La traviata, conducted by Lorin Maazel. She has performed with the London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, Israel Philharmonic, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Tokyo Philharmonic, Münchner Philharmoniker, Seoul Philharmonic and Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
