–The Italian mezzosoprano will travel to the Teatro Carlo Felice to sing the role of Adalgisa in Norma after having opened the season at La Scala with Andrea Chénier.
Annalisa Stroppa has just performed at the opening of the season at the Teatro alla Scala with a debut in the role of Bersi in Andrea Chénier (Giordano). “It was a great experience, even though I had already performed on Saint Ambrose night at La Scala the year before, in Madama Butterfly”, explains Stroppa, who was highly acclaimed on the occasion, when she was conducted by Riccardo Chailly and sang alongside Anna Netrebko.
After La Scala, also this January, she will travel to the Teatro Carlo Felice in Genoa (Italy), where she will take on the role of Adalgisa again, in Bellini’s Norma, a role which she has already performed in Spain, Germany and Italy. This time she will be singing alongside the legendary soprano Mariella Devia, no less, who is a renowned for this role and bel-canto opera. “After La Scala I am really excited to be travelling to Genoa”, says the artist, to take on “a character I love very much, Adalgisa in Norma, a role which I have had the honour of singing in theatres such as the Massimo in Palermo and the Liceu in Barcelona”. She adds that “in November 2018 I will sing it again at the marvellous Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, an engagement that I am really excited about”, she concludes. The Bellini masterpiece will be on at the Carlo Felice on the 24th and the 31st January, conducted by Andrea Battistoni.
Upcoming engagements include Verona (Anna Bolena), Las Palmas in Grand Canary (Carmen), Turin (Così fan tutte) and the Bregenz Festival (Carmen).
