FRANCESCA PATANÈ IN THE ROLE OF LADY MACBETH
Soprano Francesca Patane’ hails from a well-known musical family. Her father Giuseppe and grandfather Franco, both conductors, were held in very high esteem. She grew up commuting between Berlin and New York, perfecting her art at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music in NY. Her international career, as a lirico spinto, took off at the Teatro Regio in Torino with her remarkable interpretation of the title role in Cilea’s Adriana Lecovreur under the direction of Oren. Her fame is inseparably linked to Lady Macbeth and Turandot. She is equally at home in the heavyweight Verdi and Puccini roles. In 2002 she was voted the “Best soprano of the Year” in Germany for the production of Puccini’s La Fanciulla del West. She has been invited to appear on various national TV stations to mark significant events. She has also recorded a number of CDs and DVDs.
