Sadly, it seems as though there are very few outstanding opera singers from Italy lately. Can anyone name any under 50? Grigorio is the only one I know of.

Subject: [OPERA-L] Dramatic Verdian mezzos today

Zajick is winding down. I think Anita La Rach  is her successor as a Verdian mezzo.


I've mentioned this before, but it seems the dramatic mezzos are coming from Eastern Europe, not from Italy, or if they do come from Italy, they only sing there, perhaps. \


Any other Verdian mezzo possibilities?


I was thinking Jamie Barton, but she seems more like a lighter, brighter "French" mezzo for roles like Didon, Charlotte, Leonor in La Favorite, etc.


I don't go the opera, I rarely even get out for an HD broadcast (financial and medical reasons), and thus I fear I live in the past, listening to Stignani, Barbieri, Bumbry, Dominguez, etc.


Mezzomaniac (still wondering if Marjorie Lawrence might have become a mezzo even if she had not been afflicted by polio, but the thread ended up being about David Poleri)
