This is a dual celebration: Rossini's 150th birthday and La Bartoli's 30th anniversary with Decca. Unequivocably the most lustrous Rossinian prima donna of our time, Cecilia Bartoli presents with her trademark authenticity, skill, passion and perfection, recitals of arias, rarities and surprises (including a previously unreleased recording of Salvatore Sciarrino’s orchestration of Giovanna d’Arco cantata with Riccardo Chailly), the Stabat Mater, and of course, the great operas: The Barber of Seville, Cenerentola, Il Turco in Italia, La Scala di Seta, Le comte Ory and Otello.
All of this is sumptuously presented in a box housing 15 CDs and 6 DVDs.
