RIP Giulietta Simionato

RIP Giulietta Simionato

by Christie Connolley

Italian Mezzo-Soprano, Giulietta Simionato died last week, just days before her 100th birthday.  According to the New York Times Simionato was, “A specialist in the Bel Canto repertory, which includes the work of Rossini, Bellini and Donizetti, Ms. Simionato was praised for her firm, agile voice; her smooth phrasing; and a vocal range so wide it encompassed the register of a soprano while retaining the meaty lower notes of a mezzo. She was also known for a commanding stage presence that belied her petite stature.”

RIP Giulietta!
