Annalisa Stroppa: from the Arena of Verona to Bregenz via La Scala

INTERVIEW – «The Arena of Verona is an artistic and cultural patrimony appreciated all over the world, an open air venue with all the difficulties that type of situation entail» –

We met mezzo-soprano Annalisa Stroppa at the Festival of Bregenz where she is interpreting Carmen. As to the challenges presented by the open air situation for a singer and in particular the Bregenz production, the Brescia native mezzo stated that despite the hurdles entailed by the this sort of venue (for instance, orchestra and conductor are not there with you, though they are visible on a monitor), the appeal to sing in the beautiful Seebune setting overcomes every obstacle.

When asked about her participation in Gounod’s Romeo et Juliette in 2014 at the Arena of Verona, the artist replied that «the Verona Amphitheater is a patrimony appreciated all over thew world, and the character of Stéphano, which I sang, is wonderful».

One question focuses on her presence at the inauguration of the Teatro alla Scala in December 2016 as Suzuki in Madama Butterfly. This is her reply: «I loved so much the character of Suzuki as viewed by stage director Hermanis». The singer highlights that she owes a lot to Maestro Riccardo Muti and mentions her International launch in Salzburg and Ravenna.”
