Lucia Aliberti - Artistic Curriculum

The sicilian soprano Lucia Aliberti was awarded a diploma with special recognition from the Conservatory in Messina while still very young. She studied with Luigi Ricci in Rome, with Herbert von Karajan and Alfredo Kraus. Musician and composer, while studying singing, she was also studying the piano and other musical instruments like guitar, accordion, violin and mandolin. She has composed many pieces for piano, clarinet, flute and voice.

After winning the Spoleto and ENAL competitions, she began her artistic career as Amina in Bellinis "La Sonnambula" in Spoleto at the festival dei Due Mondi under the direction of Giancarlo Menotti. She sings at the world's major theaters: The Metropolitan Opera in New York, Washington Opera, Royal Opera House Covent Garden in London, Scala in Milan, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Bayerische Staatsoper Munich, Hamburg Staatsoper, Staatstheater Stuttgart, Vienna State Opera, Opera House Zurich, Bolshoi in Moscow, Royal Opera Stockholm, Teatro Real in Madrid, Nederlandse Opera in Amsterdam, Theatre de la Monnaie in Brussels, Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires and Bunka Kaikan Tokyo.

She supports UNESCO and UNICEF with concerts, she sang for Pope Johannes Paul II. at the Vatican, Queen Sirikit of Thailand in Bangkok, Prince Charles of England, Prince Albert of Monaco at Sporting Club in Monte-Carlo, German President Horst Köhler and Prince Hiro of Japan.

Her natural vocal talents are enhanced by a technique which allows her to sustain even the most difficult parts in the "Belcanto"-repertory. International critics have also underlined her particular stage presence. She is considered a specialist in the repertory of Bellini (Norma, La Sonnambula, Il Pirata, I Puritani, I Capuleti e I Montecchi, Beatrice di Tenda, La Straniera). The other most important composers in her repertory are Donizetti (Lucia di Lammermoor, Anna Bolena, Lucrezia Borgia, L' elisir d'amore, Don Pasquale, La fille du regiment Linda di Chamounix), Rossini (Semiramide, Tancredi, Stabat Mater) and Verdi (La Traviata, Rigoletto, Luisa Miller, Simon Boccanegra, I Due Foscari, Attila, I Masnadieri, Un Giorno di Regno, Il Trovatore).

In 2013 the critically acclaimed CD „Early Verdi Arias“ was released to celebrate the 200th birthday of Giuseppe Verdi. Press quotes: "The best Verdi-disc to come my way this year." (Financial Times, UK). "Lucia Aliberti is exactly the right soprano to tap the lyrical power of Verdis vocal writing." (Gramophone).
