Graziella Sciutti (1932 - 2001)

Sciutti, whose father was an organist and her mother French, was born into a cultured family. At first she studied singing privately with Ginevra Marinuzzi and then, initially intending to become a concert singer, enrolled at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia, Rome, where her teacher was Rachele Margliano-Mori.

In 1948 Sciutti sang in an Italian radio broadcast of Mozart’s L’oca del Cairo and the following year made her concert debut in Venice with a programme of eighteenth-century songs. Gabriel Dussurget, the founder and director of the Aix-en-Provence Festival, heard this and engaged her to sing in Menotti’s comic opera The Telephone at the Festival in 1951, as well as Elisetta / Il matrimonio segreto. It was immediately apparent that opera suited her very well and she never looked back.

A frequent performer at Aix, Sciutti sang Susanna / Le nozze di Figaro (1952), Despina / Così fan tutte (1953) and Zerlina / Don Giovanni and in 1954 created the title part in Les Caprices de Marianne by Henri Sauguet. Also in that year she appeared at Glyndebourne as Rosina / Il barbiere di Siviglia, returning to sing Nanetta / Falstaff (also heard in Paris) and Susanna (1958), Despina (1959) and much later Fiorilla / Il turco in Italia (1970).
