Vincerò – The Italian Opera Experience – The Wonders of Opera Wonderfully Shared
By Ernest Kearney
(A) presentation of wonders for the operatic art unshackled from the stifling formality of the opera house and the throngs of old money ticket holders.
In his introduction to the show, Sticco definitely gives the best description of opera I’ve ever heard, calling it a musical art form in which the human voice was treated as another “instrument” in the composition. And in which replacing the spoken word with an emotional honesty conveyed in song, “made us look beyond the masks.”
"Proving what’s old will be made new again, pop-culture has entered a renaissance of Opera with Natalja Sticco, a sultry mezzo-soprano, as its new face. With a purity of talent, passion, warmth, and authenticity not seen since the 2007 passing of the legendary Luciano Pavarotti, Natalja’s unpretentious and unapologetic love of the 400-year-old art has made her the standout artist of her generation; challenging audiences to forget stereotypes of Opera as an elitist indulgence and explore it as a cultural experience, without having to feel like you should be jamming to arias with friends in order to enjoy it!"
