«"Nur selten hört man die Gilda mit einer solchen mädchenhaften Leichtigkeit"»
Südkurier.de (2016)
«Seine Tochter Gilda wird von Arianna Ballotta mit leuchtender, glockenreiner und apart timbrierter Stimme gesungen. Schon das Duett mit Rigoletto gerät zu einem vokalen Höhepunkt, dem dann ihre grosse Arie Caro nome noch ein phänomenales Glanzlicht aufsetzt, wunderbar unterstützt von den Holzbläsern des Orchesters. Da öffnet sich beim Zuhören der Himmel, genauso wie in ihrem Liebesgeständnis im zweiten Akt, ihren Lamento-Einwürfen im Quartett und ihrem berührenden Abschied von dieser Welt»

Bio

Arianna Ballotta first came to public attention in 2002 &nbspwhen she was awarded the best young singer in the "Debut in Meran" International Singing Competition in Merano. She then continued to study and develop with Maestro Vincenzo Antonio Manno from The Scuola Civica di Milano and with Maestro Claudio Desderi (Accademia di Santa Cecilia di Portogruaro e Scuola di Musica di Fiesole), Luciana Serra (Villa Medici Giulini), Luciana D’Intino (Accademia Harmonica, Teatro Sociale Rovigo), La Scuola dell’Opera Italiana in collaboration with The Teatro Comunale di Bologna and The Opera Studio with The Teatro Carlo Felice, Genova. She made her successful operatic debut as Nannetta in Falstaff under the direction of Maestro Desderi which lead to further invitations to perform Susanna in The Marraige of Figaro and Gilda in Rigoletto with the Maestro. In 2008 she performed the title role in Lucia di Lammermoor for The Teatro Comunale di Bologna which lead to subsequent invitations to sing Norina (Don Pasquale), Gilda (Rigoletto), Musetta (La Bohème), Adina (Elisir d’Amore) and Lisette in La Rondine conducted by Josè Cura.  Being bilingual (Italian/German) Arianna is also easily able to interpret roles like The Queen of the Night  in The Magic Flute as she also did for The Teatro Carlo Felice, Genova and a Flowermaiden in Parsifal for The Teatro Regio di Torino. These engagements lead to a further invitation to revisit the role of Gilda in Rigoletto for The Teatro di San Gallo. In 2013 she was honoured to perform alongside Juan Diego Florez in the role of Jemmy in Guillaume Tell for The Gran Teatro Nacional, Lima and the lead female role, Cora in the opera Atahualpa by C.E.Pasta (recorded by Universal).
