Premio alla Carriera “Toti dal Monte” – in its first edition – was awarded this year to soprano Marina Rebeka, as part of a gala evening at the Mario Del Monaco Theater in Treviso, in the presence of the Venice Chamber Orchestra conducted by Speranza Scappucci on September 12.
Premio alla Carriera “Teatro Massimo Bellini” was awarded to soprano Marina Rebeka, as part of a gala concert “Mira, o Norma” at Teatro Massimo Bellini, together with mezzo-soprano Anna Goryachova, tenor Stefan Pop, bass Antonio Di Matteo and conductor Fabrizio Maria Carminati on September 5.
“…In preparation for the complete performance in stage form, “Mira, o Norma” is a concert in which an exhaustive, rich, compelling anthology of Bellini’s masterpiece is presented. It will be a precious opportunity to discover, in preview, the talent of Marina Rebeka, who since her debut at the Salzburg Festival in 2009, directed by Riccardo Muti, is a guest of the most important opera houses and concert halls in the world, in a repertoire that ranges from the Baroque period to the Italian, French and Russian nineteenth century. She is an authoritative Verdi interpreter, close to her Scala stage debut in Massenet’s Thaïs, she is conquering the international stages with the role of the druidic priestess, of which she will plumb private passions and public virtues“.
