of the Easter Festival founded by Enrico Castiglione.
An extraordinary number of Italian and foreign public of all ages, crept into every corner of the
Basilica of the Twelve Holy Apostles lurking everywhere, finding place on the ground,
on the steps of the altar, in the niches of the confessionals in order to attend the event
and was carried away by the musics from Albinoni, Corelli, Verdi, Donizetti, Bizet, Mendelssohn, Bellini.
The concert began with the 'Air on the IV chord' of Bach performed by Maestro Marco Silvi.
But the absolute protagonist of the evening was the worldwide acclaimed soprano Lucia Aliberti,
with the Orchestra of the Easter Festival, conducted by Maestro Stefano Sovrano, she passionately
dedicated herself to the rich program of sacred music including four 'Ave Maria', by Mascagni,
Bossi, Gounod and Schubert. Her performance was greeted by the warmest audience applause.

FESTSPIELHAUS BADEN-BADEN, Dec 8, 2012Concert at Festspielhaus Baden-Baden:
"Lucia Aliberti thrilled in the slow passages sung with utmost
perfection in which she played off the slightly dark color of her
soprano wonderfully. Later, they also showed, however, that she has an
incredibly high volume, with which she can easily turn from a tender,
lyrical to a powerful, dramatic soprano."

DER TAGESSPIEGEL, July 2010Lucia Aliberti impresses with agility and technical flexibility and her stage presence is enormous.
FINANCIAL TIMESThis soprano stands in the first line of the musical life: The Italian Lucia Aliberti has everything, that one expects from a Primadonna of today. With her dazzling appearance, her charismatic aura and her perfect belcanto voice, she is able to fill the biggest houses. Now the soprano has recorded a new CD with Verdi arias that he wrote in his galley years. With an easy leaded voice, Aliberti sings from I Vespri Siciliani to Macbeth, about joy, tragedy, fate and revenge. Lots of Italianita comes from the Choir & Orchestra di Milano Giuseppe Verdi.
LEIPZIGER VOLKSZEITUNGLucia Aliberti and the Verdi-Orchestra under Oleg Caetani reach directly the soul of the listener because of the sensible and disciplined interpretation. Lucia Aliberti is not a virtoso Kiriki-Diva. She could be one, but the colours are more important for her, the line, the shades, that shine through the beauty tones. Her technique is breathtaking. How she softly turns in the high areas of the belcanto into the piano, how she can forever spin legato, that only she can do today. Singer and orchestra are deeply tied together, play virtuoso with the inner tempo, they breath together. The primadonna is composing even the colours of the tones in connection with the accompany. Sensuality and creative intelligenz are very close together. Aliberti is a profound singer and her art in this extraordinary well produced album stands for veracity.
WESTDEUTSCHE ALLGEMEINE ZEITUNGBravo, Verdissimo. Lucia Aliberti presents all her vocal qualities. Wonderful high notes, thick mezzo voce and extrem sensible interpretation. She feels all roles and situations of the Verdi-charakters. She suffers, loves and dies with the charakters. Belcanto cannot be more deeply moving and therefore is correctly called Lucia Aliberti.
BUNTEBravissimo, Lucia Aliberti!
HANNOVERSCHE ALLGEMEINE ZEITUNGLucia Aliberti has a passionate mission for the young Verdi. The interpretation is wonderful with her incredible technique and her wisely calculated sentiment.
NDR KULTURThe greater the technical demands, the more Lucia Aliberti celebrated a triumpf with her coloratura-technique and her art of singing belcanto.
TZListen! Lucia Alibertis CD Verdissimo is a trip into the secret repertory of Verdi and a the same time a storm to the top of Verdi interpretations. Aliberti sings with fulfilled bravura, sensible power, enthusiastic dramatic turn and lots of emotional nuances. She is supported in perfect verdi-style by the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi and Oleg Caetani.
HAMBURGER ABENDBLATTThis album discovers Verdi-Rarities that are almost never to be found on CD or on stage these days. For Verdissimo the sicilian soprano has picked interesting arias form „La Battaglia di Legnano“ for example, „Aroldo“ or „Alzira“. Lots of credit is to be given to Lucia Aliberti to bring this repertory back to life. And her interpretation brings the young Verdi into shining light with effectful piani and coloraturas.
