Recalling Cecilia in Le Nozze di Figaro

The stage photos of Cecilia Bartoli in Le Nozze di Figaro (Paris, Opéra Bastille, December 1990) have been scanned and they appeared recently in the catalogue of the Bibliothèque nationale de France. It consists in a set of 89 photos. Cecilia was 24 and she was singing the part of Cherubino.


  1. It's wonderful to view these photos. Thanks a lot GF for sharing that with us.

  2. Thank you, GF, for sharing! On picture no. 2 one can see her being inspired by the muse (in German we say, she's kissed by the muse, that matches even more). :)

  3. Thanks for sharing those photos, Cecilia must have been a fantastic Cherubino.

  4. How wonderful -:). Seeing Cecilia at that age reminds me of all those years, she is accompanying my life

  5. does anyone knows if Cecilia will record Handel's Alcina for Decca?
