What a career! Venice, London, Dresden – and everywhere the audiences were at her feet. Francesca Cuzzoni sang in the most important opera houses of her time music by the most exciting opera composers of the late Baroque. Hilary Cronin, the winner of the 2021 Handel Singing Competition, is also a sought-after singer in Europe. The English soprano is the nuova Francesca (the new Francesca Cuzzoni) and in this programme has nothing to envy that singer in terms of power and vitality. She too enchants audiences with her voice, unique stage presence and tremendous virtuosity.
