Cecilia Bartoli gets her own opera house

Opera de Monte-Carlo has named the Italian mezzo as its new artistic director from 2023.

Jean-Louis Grinda, director of Opera de Monte-Carlo, says he is ‘appointing a woman who is extraordinarily skilled, an artist who has left her mark on the history of the opera.’

More than any singer in her generation, Cecilia is making a painless transition from performer to manager.
