Cecilia Bartoli (Mezzo-Soprano)
The Italian soprano or mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli (born 4 June 1966, Rome) is an opera singer and recitalist. She is best-known for her interpretation of the music of Mozart and Rossini, as well as for her performances of lesser-known Baroque and classical music. She is known for having the versatilty to play both soprano and mezzo roles, and is sometimes considered a soprano with a low tessitura. Bartoli's coloratura skill has earned her the title the Queen of Agility.

The Roman mezzo makes her role-debut as the feisty feminist Isabella in Rossini's culture-clash comedy, filmed last year at the Salzburg Festival and directed by Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier.
Nearly twenty years after her landmark album devoted to the operas of the 'Red Priest', the Italian mezzo is as dazzling as ever in arias from works including Orlando furioso, Il Giustino and Ottone in Villa.
