Although she triumphs in Verdi, Daniela Barcellona has not abandoned us!

Daniela Barcellona’s membership on the Honorary Board of the Friends of the Rossini Opera Festival ( that’s us!) is something we treasure, particularly since had such an amazing success as Mistress Quickly, in Verdi’s Falstaff with Riccardo Muti in Chicago. More recently she was part of the Verdi Requiem in New York City with Gianandrea Noseda where she helped cheer up all the Rossini fans who were robbed the day before of their double-header at the Met.

But she has not forgotten us! Here is the evidence ( a new sort of selfie) taken at a meeting between performances in Chicago.

Her comic talents are very much in evidence in these performances, and we are sure Rossini would have had a good laugh along with us!!!

Be sure to read our exclusive interview with her, here on this site!
