Compilation: Antonietta Stella - Featuring arias and excerpts from Aida, Un Ballo in maschera, Don Carlo and more
Listen to a Sample:
Antonietta Stella was one of the most brilliant sopranos of her day. She came of age quite young and unfortunately did not enjoy the longevity that some of her colleagues did (she is about the same age as Mirella Freni, Luciano Pavarotti and Montserrat Caballé.) At her peak, her voice was lush and immense and her technique was secure enough to allow her to alternate between roles like Linda di Chamounix and Violetta with heavier roles like Tosca and Cio-Cio San. We are pleased to offer this retrospective featuring arias and excerpts from La Battaglia di Legnano, Aida, Un Ballo in maschera, Don Carlo, Otello, Madama Butterfly, La Fanciulla del west, Tosca and Andrea Chénier.
