Audiences on both coasts eagerly await the return to America of Opera's fabled star. Cecilia Bartoli last performed in New York in 1998 - at the Metropolitan Opera as Susana in Mozart's "Le nozze di Figaro." She was last seen at Carnegie Hall in 1997 in concert with the Met Orchestra. And Californians haven't thrilled to the Bartoli trill since 1995!
This time around the young ebullient Roman mezzo-soprano - a natural singer and actress with a flair for the comic (her Despina and Susana at the Met being prime examples), and the epitome of joyfulness on the concert stage - will give voice, for the most part, to Antonio Vivaldi's relatively unknown arias and songs.
The all-Vivaldi program begins at Carnegie Hall on February 20, 2001 and moves on across country to the Orange County Performing Arts Center [in Costa Mesa, California, presented by the Philharmonic Society of Orange County (PSOC)] on February 26, and up to Berkeley's Zellerbach Hall (under the auspices of Cal Performances) on February 28.
The repertoire will include selections from Vivaldi's unfamiliar operas such as: "Gelosia" from Ottone in Villa, "Non ti lusinghi la crudeltade" from Tito Manlio, "Tra la follie...Siam navi all'onde algenti" from Olimpiade, "Gelido in ogni vena" from Farnace, "Anche il mar par che sommerga" from Bajazet, "Armate face, et anguibus" from Juditha Triumphans, "Agitata da due venti" from Griselda, as well as "Quamvis ferro et ense gravis" and "Domine Deus" from Gloria and orchestral pieces performed by the 15-member period instrument ensemble Il Giardino Armonico that will accompany her. (Some of the program selections have been recorded by Ms. Bartoli and the Il Giardino Armonico, which was released in October 1999 and nominated for a 2001 Grammy award.)

Many of these songs have not been heard since the
17th and 18th centuries. Thus, the performance will be tantamount to a US
premiere. By Ms. Bartoli's own unabashed admission, when it comes to her
repertory, she is a "child of the 17th and early 18th centuries"
and will go to great pains to discover unknown works within her metier (Yes,
the pretty face with the pretty voice does her homework with scholarly passion!)
as she has doubtless done with the present program. And it is almost a sure
bet that with the magic wand of her virtuosic voice, the songs will be lifted
out of obscurity.
For now, perhaps the farthest she will stray from early 18th century is late 18th century - with Hector Berlioz' music, such as the impassioned Les nuits d'�t� which she will sing when she goes back to Carnegie Hall on March 9 this time to perform in concert with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Daniel Barenboim conducting. Two days later on March 11, conductor and soloist will join together to give their first duo recital at Carnegie Hall, in a program of more familiar works by Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, Viardot, Bizet, and Rossini as part of Carnegie Hall's Great Singers in Recital series.
It will be quite a Bartoli season, the end of winter. And as the lucky audiences on both coasts warm up to the unique Bartoli sound, surely they can only be "enchante!"
