Presentation

Castrato Girolamo Crescentini (1762-1846) was the last true star of this voice category, which disappeared at the beginning of the 19th century. The greatest Italian composers wrote operas for him; Cherubini (Pimmalione, 1809), Cimarosa (Gli Orazi e li Curiaci, 1796) and above all Zingarelli (Giulietta e Romeo, 1796) brought Crescentini to European fame, from Milan to Vienna and Paris, performing the great heroic roles. Napoleon was often brought to tears up when he listened to him and he granted the artist the greatest marks of honour and affection.

He is now embodied by a singer unequalled today for his wide vocal range, his virtuosity and expressiveness, which enable him to revive early bel canto at its peak. Franco Fagioli thus sumptuously creates the link between the castrati tradition and the great singers of the following century.
