Anna Bonitatibus Interview on Saturday Night at the Opera 5/29

Saturday, May 29, 2021 – 9:00pm

Italian mezzo-soprano Anna Bonitatibus has established herself as one of opera’s greatest interpreters of the Italian repertoire, from Monteverdi’s earliest works to the operas of Rossini and Donizetti. In recent years, Bonitatibus has emerged not simply as a singer but a vital musicologist, who has helped rediscover previously forgotten composers and their music, both through her championing them as a performer and through her music publishing company, Consonarte. In a wide-ranging interview with Stepan Atamian, Bonitatibus discusses her latest album of Beethoven’s rarely heard Italian songs, along with her professional singing career and her commitment to reexamining Italian vocal music.

La voce di Anna Bonitatibus evoca Semiramide, la prima regina della Mesopotamia, tracciando un itinerario musicale che va da Meyerbeer a Rossini e García. Si tratta di un estratto dall’album Semiramide – La Signora regale, con cui il mezzosoprano ha vinto l’International Opera Awards.
Dalla Semiramide di Giacomo Meyerbeer ascoltiamo dunque recitativo e canzonetta con coro “Più non si tardi – Il piacer, la gioia scenda”. Solista Elena Spotti all’arpa obbligata. A seguire “Serena i vaghi rai – Bel raggio lusinghier” dalla Semiramide di Gioachino Rossini. Infine “Già il perfido discese – Al mio pregar t’arrendi” dalla Semiramis di Manuel García. Accompagnano Anna Bonitatibus il Coro La Stagione Armonica e l’Accademia degli Astrusi diretti da Federico Ferri.
