Notes

"Cecilia Bartoli leads a tribute to the extraordinary life of Maria Malibran, the first female superstar in music history. A meteoric career, which ended abruptly with her death at the age of only 28, made Maria Malibran an international celebrity. Surrounded by scandal and mystique, she was muse to the most important opera composers of the era. She was worshipped as the public goddess of Romanticism. Cecilia Bartoli follows La Malibran's unique journey through the musical capitals of the world."
