Notes and Editorial Reviews

Anna Bonitatibus is one of the most successful mezzo-sopranos of our time. On her new album entitled "en travesti", together with the Munich Radio Orchestra conducted by Corrado Rovaris, she presents the most famous and important arias written over the past three hundred years for women acting in male roles on the opera stage: so-called "trouser roles". The fifteen arias begin with Handel and Vivaldi, then go on to include works by Gluck and Mozart, the Italians Rossini, Bellini and Donizetti, the French opera composers Meyerbeer, Offenbach and Massenet, the Verists Mascagni and Puccini, as well as Ravel and Richard Strauss; and the programme concludes with a song from the film musical "Victor/Victoria". There Read more are famous and lesser-known opera titles here, popular musical numbers and also genuine rediscoveries - from Baroque opera to Italian bel canto, all the way to songs from contemporary musicals. It's an impressive concept, and lots of fun. The studio recordings by the Bayerischer Rundfunk were made in the summer of 2016, and have now been released on BR-KLASSIK Read less
