Aida, Arena di Verona, June 2023


Maria José Siri in the title role. The Uruguayan soprano (who has been a Veronese citizen for years) performs a convincing Aida that sings with fullness and richness of cavata, perhaps reaching the top of its parable, very efficient even in the scenic game.


Maria Jose Siri is confirmed as a perfect Aida due to the peculiarity of the Arena basin. Sumptuous, torrential voice that knows how to bend to the colors and dynamics required in the score at the right moment.

His interpretation and acting admirably fit into the context desired by the director. The Uruguayan soprano sings the part with great composure; each sound is well calibrated, thanks to the uniform emission that enhances an instrument that is admirable in itself. We will long remember the ringing hold of the high C that closes his "O cielo azzurri" all sung in itself with an adherence to the text and the complete music.
