Bio

Rosanna Carteri

The Italian lyric soprano Rosanna Carteri (1930 –     ) shortened her career to devote herself to her family. But for 17 years she was adored by discerning audiences, who relished not just her luminous voice but also the exquisite beauty and personality that went with it.  Lyric, in 1954 and 1955, got only a taste of her large repertoire. In Europe she ran the gamut from Handel to Prokofiev, and she excelled in works of many contemporary Italian composers.
