Raffaella Milanesi

soprano

Raffaella Milanesi was born in Rome and trained at the Santa Cecilia Academy, where she made her debut in 1997. Her many roles include Susanna in The Marriage of Figaro, Musetta in La Bohème and Norina in Don Pasquale, but she has also worked with the rediscovery of operas from the eighteenth century, for example Salieri’s La Grotta di Trofonio, Martin y Soler’s La capricciosa corretta and Traetta’s Antigona, in which she has sung the title role at the Chatelet Opera in Paris and the La Monnaie Opera in Brussels, conducted by among others Christophe Rousset. On CD she has recorded arias by Berlioz, and she can be heard on Adam Fischer’s recording of Mozart’s Il re pastore.
