LUCIA ALIBERTI, THE SOPRANOReview on an international and unique career by Giorgio Bagnoli.
Lucia Aliberti has mostly worked abroad, where she has made a name for herself as a soprano singer. Though not involved in the business which makes artists and talented people of any cultural field successful, she has managed to establish her name thanks to her own determination, vocal talent and constant study. Therefore, her personality has led her to address to a stricter and more demanding audience. This is also the reason why she boast a impeccable way of singing, which has been preserved thanks to hard work. As a matter of fact she has attended many famous singing schools, which paved the way for a durable career: she studied singing under the famous teacher Luigi Ricci at first and then under the tenor Alfredo Kraus, who taught her the secrets of the “Belcanto”-repertory. Lucia Aliberti is not only a very talented soprano, but also musician and composer and she is considered one of the most complete artists of the last generations. Many international critics have praised her unique vocal agility, emphasizing her particular stage presence, her personality and her elegance, not only in the way she sings but also in her posture. She has sung in the most famous theatres in the world before international and well-known people.
