Decca Releases World-Premiere DVD Recording of Halévy’s Clari Featuring Cecilia Bartoli

Famed mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli recreates the 1828 triumph of the legendary Maria Malibran – original star and dedicatee of Halévy’s “tragi-comedy”, Clari – in this newly recorded DVD from Decca. Bartoli’s fascination with Malibran is well documented, most dramatically with the mezzo’s recording project, Maria, from 2007. This now forgotten opera received the star treatment from Bartoli and the Orchestra ‘La Scintilla’ of the Zurich Opera in this new production.
