  1. Well, that's a castrato programme (Mozart's Sesto is originally a castrato part too) + St. Petersburg. It lacks the logic of the original Sacrificium recital structure, but is a good chance for the audience there to listen to some highlights of the recent years.

  2. I love that she's back in the castrati repertoire! sacrificium is my fav album of hers, my dream is a cd about Farinelli with Cecilia, she's the one and only that can sing his music and sing it well.

  3. LA Times says tour is cancelled.

      No reasons are mentioned!

  4. Oh. Very sorry to hear that. I very much hope that none of the Bartoli family is seriously ill.
