Bio

From a very young age Maria Letizia has devoted herself to the study of piano and singing. When she was only 19, she graduated with full marks in operatic singing from the &ldquoF.A. Bonporti” Conservatory in Trento, and later studied with Maestro Vincenzo Manno at the International Music Academy in Milan. She furthered her operatic studies by winning several auditions to attend prestigious masterclasses given by Renata Scotto (Opera Studio at Santa Cecilia Academy in Rome and Verdi Opera Studio at Regio Theatre in Parma), Raina Kabaiwanska (Chigiana Musical Academy in Siena, Academy for soloists at the Arena in Verona) and Regina Resnik (Mastery Course at Teatri SPA, Treviso). Winner of the X International Competition for Young Opera Singers Riccardo Zandonai (Rovereto, Italy) Maria Letizia also received the Special Award for the best performance of arias and chamber songs by Riccardo Zandonai. In 2010 she became a regular member of the ensemble at the International Festival of the Arena in Verona, where she has performed solo roles in Aida and Madame Butterfly conducted by Daniel Oren and in Nabucco with Placido Domingo. In 2010 she made her debut in the Arena as Liu in Turandot under the direction of Franco Zeffirelli. Other engagements in many of the most important theatres in Italy have included Violetta in La Traviata in Venice, Leonora in La Forza del Destino (Verdi theatre Busseto/Parma), Leonora in Il Trovatore (Sociale theatre Trento), Donna Anna and Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni in Verona and Turin, Aida in Reggio Calabria, Cio Cio San in Madame Butterfly in Pordenone, Nella in Gianni Schicchi in Florence, Micaela in Carmen (Verona and Japan), Lady Billows from Albert Herring at the Rendano theatre in Cosenza and Curlew River. She has also performed for the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Ente Luglio Musical Trapanese in Trapani, the Verdi theatre in Pisa and the Verdi theatre in Busseto. Maria Letizia also has a very successful international career. In 2011 she was the soprano soloist in Verdi's Requiem in St. Petersburg and scored a major triumph as Mimi in La Boheme for the Tashken Opera House in Uzbekistan. She is regularly invited as guest soprano all over the world (Australia, Usa, Greek, Turkey, UK, Belgium, Colombia, Argentina, Messico, Guatemala, Brazil, France, Spain, Serbia, Japan, Russian, China etc.), and delights in performing concerts with piano or orchestra at important international festivals and musical institutions (Semana musical Llao Llao in Bariloche, Argentina, Palacio des Bellas Artes in Mexico City and Festival Cervantino in Mexico, Palais des Beaux Arts in Bruxelles, Festival dell’Eté Mosan, Festival Musical des Raspes a Charleroi in Belgium, International Music Festival Saint Petersburg Palaces in Saint Petersburg, Festival Bemus in Belgrade, Serbia). In 2010 she recorded the complete edition of chamber songs by Riccardo Zandonai, entitled "Terra di sogni". In addition to her operatic achievements, Maria Letizia is a graduate cum laude (2002) in Classical Literature and Music with her thesis of Music history Il canto di Dioniso – Mito e musica ne Le Baccanti di Giorgio Federico Ghedini (Dioniso's singing – Myth and music in Giorgio federico Ghedini's Le Baccanti)
