About the Concert

"Ovations, cheers, applause, encores, and that for three quarters of an hour", "Endless applause", "Vienna in Bartoli fever" or "Victory run for La Bartoli": just some of the many headlines about the summer Rossini Mania, which caused a sensation at the Vienna State Opera in 2022 with bel canto at the highest level. Bartoli's second great love, however, is baroque opera, and it is precisely this that she will be returning to the Haus am Ring for a second guest performance at the beginning of July 2024. She will once again be supported by the Musiciens du Prince - Monaco, the orchestra she founded and which performs on period instruments at the opera in Monte Carlo, where she is Artistic Director.

Bartoli: "The fireworks we set off with Rossini Mania will be hard to beat. But with support from Hollywood and a baroque opera frenzy like the one that swept Europe in the 18th century - with the music capital of Naples at the forefront - we will try to (ba)rock the State Opera again in 2024."

Support from Hollywood? This refers to John Malkovich, with whom Bartoli will perform Their Masterʼs Voice as part of the guest performance. Malkovich, a fascinating performer of complex characters, is also an extremely resonant name in opera circles: he and director Michael Sturminger caused a worldwide sensation with projects about Casanova and Da Ponte, in which live music, poetry, acting and stage performance merged into a unique performance tailored to the participants. Their Master's Voice, a new project by the duo about baroque singing stars, is currently being created in collaboration with Cecila Bartoli and the Opéra de Monte-Carlo.
