Linda Campanella soprano

LINDA CAMPANELLA  is acclaimed as one of the most versatile voices on the international opera scene, and more recently as one of the best vocal technique and interpretation coaches. She took two graduations  in Piano  and in Opera singing, she refined her operatic skills with Renata Scotto, Franca Mattiucci, Rockwell Bell and Robert Kettelson. Linda Campanella offers a vast and proven experience in diverse musical contexts: melodramma, baroque, lieder, sacred and contemporary.In melodramma she naturally  combines technical and interpretative qualities. She has been a regular guest at the most prestigious international theatres singing all over the world. She particularly excels in roles of Italian and Mozartian bel canto. She has made her debut in almost 50 operatic roles including the main leading characters in Mozart’s (Susanna, Donna Anna, Queen of the Night, Konstanze etc), Rossini’s (Rosina, Fanni, Berenica, Sofia etc), Donizetti’s (Lucia, Adina, Norina, Betly etc) up to Verdi’s Traviata and Rigoletto. She delivered memorable performances at The Donizetti Festival in Bergamo, at the Regio of Turin, at the Coccia of Novara, at the Philarmonic Theatre of Verona, and abroad in Japan, China and South Africa. An earnest consideration goes to the numerous collaborations and recordings with baroque ensembles such as Diego Fasolis’ Barocchisti and Estevan Velardi’s Stradella Consort culminating in the release of several CDs where she performs from Stradella’s, Vivaldi’s, Scarlatti’s and Paer’s repertoire. Linda is also renowned in the sacred and contemporary music field. Some notable composers (Colla, Possio, Correggia and Yanov-Yanovsky) specifically wrote operatic roles for her in celebration of her virtuosic qualities. In this regard it is worth mentioning her cooperation with the MITO Festival. Another remarkable contribution is her repertoire in the field of lieder: from Mozart’s lieder to Berg’s, moving through the German, Spanish, French Romantics and Late Romantics to the Polish songs by Chopin and the Russian compositions by Sostakovic and Tchaikovsky. Her collaborations with numerous pianists, and lately with the piano maestro Michele Campanella, are of great significance in this context. In addition Linda is a highly regarded teacher of vocal technique and interpretation.  Students from China, Russia and Japan travel to Italy to attend Linda’s coaching lessons. She has conducted opera master classes at Kunitachi University of Tokyo and at Beijing Academy, and at several Italian Music Conservatories. She has also been an operatic teacher at The Voice Academy of Turin.
