Katia Ricciarelli (b1946)

Katia Ricciarelli’s early years were marred by tragedy: her father died when she was young and the other members of her family, apart from her mother, were killed in a car accident. After completing her schooling she worked to earn the money to allow her to study singing at the Benedetto Marcello Conservatory in Venice, where she was a pupil of Iris Adami Corradetti, a notable soprano of the inter-war years. During 1968 Ricciarelli won several vocal competitions and made her operatic stage debut in 1969 at Mantua as Mimì / La Bohème. The following year she appeared in Cherubini’s Anacreon in Siena, attracting considerable interest which increased when she won the Verdi Award at Parma in 1970 and the Voci Verdiane competition in 1971. She subsequently sang Leonora / Il trovatore at Parma as well as the title role in Verdi’s Giovanna d’Arco in Rome and Medora / Il corsaro in concert with principals of La Fenice at Frankfurt, all in 1971.
