Arias by Mozart, Anfossi, Tarchi, Martin y Soler
with Adriana González

Adriana's arias

Everybody knows Fiordiligi’s rondò from Così fan tutte, but who was the singer behind it? Adriana Ferrarese del Bene from Udine numbered among the great prima donnas of the time and was always good for a scandal: she fled surreptitiously from the Venetian Ospedale dei Mendicanti, was Lorenzo da Ponte’s mistress in Vienna, and sang in Reggio as the first prima donna on Italy with the tricolor on her dress. Throughout her eventful career, the rondò was her constant companion: the large dramatic aria in two parts of which not only Mozart was a master. Giuseppe Sarti, Pasquale Anfossi, and Angelo Tarchi were the true masters of the rondò in Italy. Adriana Ferrarese performed their music so poignantly that audiences in Milan’s La Scala and the London Opera went crazy.

A young prima donna of today relates the life story of la Ferrarese in major arias: Adriana González. By coincidence she bears the same first name. Her voice volume, her radiant high notes and astonishing control over her instrument make her the ideal “Adriana.” Since winning first prize at Placido Domingo’s “Operalia” in 2019, the opera world lies at her feet. With her program “Rondò,” she builds a bridge between Mozart and the music of his forgotten contemporaries in Italy.
