The acclaimed mezzosoprano Cecilia Bartoli is accompanied by the “La Scintilla” Orchestra in a programme dedicated to the music of castrati. Predominantly active in the mid-late 16th century, and regarded as members of the Neapolitan school of voice, the castrati were young men either castrated during their prepubescent years, or born hermaphroditic. They were able to sing at remarkably high ranges and a whole set of arias were composed exclusively for them. Cecilia Bartoli has released an album entitled Sacrificium in which she interprets a series of castrato arias, filmed at various locations on the grounds of the Palace of Caserta. In this concert – also entitled Sacrificium – she repeats that repertoire. Auditorium Parco della Musica, Viale P. de Coubertin, tel. 068082858, www.santacecilia.it.
