Biography

Anna Bonitatibus, a native of Basilicata in Italy, made her debut at La Scala Milan in 1999 in Don Giovanni under the baton of Riccardo Muti. Since then her interpretations have included over fifty operatic titles, covering early baroque to bel canto repertoire and collaborating with all the major conductors and directors such as Ivor Bolton, Sir Antonio Pappano, Renè Jacobs, William Christie, Myung Whung Chung, Franz Welser-Möst, Roberto Abbado, Alain Altinoglu, Marc Minkowski and Teodor Currentzis.
 
From her first recording, Vivaldi’s La Griselda made in 1992, Anna Bonitatibus distinguished herself through the operas of the baroque period, Neapolitan opera buffa and French repertoire. Thanks to her performances of familiar works by Mozart, Handel and Rossini, she has performed on all Europe’s leading stages and in concert halls worldwide. Her en travesti roles deserve a special mention and as the embodiment of Cherubino, she has become one of the most acclaimed performers of Mozart.
 
Among her many award-winning recordings, Anna Bonitatibus received the International Opera Award in 2015 for her disc Semiramide, la Signora regale – a variety of musical gems discovered by herself. In 2016, Bonitatibus took a selection of songs from this album on tour with Prague baroque orchestra Collegium 1704, performing in concert halls in Baden-Baden, Essen and at Wigmore Hall in London, where Bonitatibus will return in 2018 for Italian song recitals.
 
The season 2016/17  included her debut as Dulcinée in Don Quichotte by Massenet at the season opening of Opéra National de Bordeaux under the baton of Marc Minkowski, followed by Le nozze di Figaro in Barcelona as well as concerts in Helsinki, at the Al Bustan Festival in Beirut, the Handel Festival in Karlsruhe and her highly acclaimed role debut as Penelope in Monteverdi's Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria at The Grange Festival under the baton of Michael Change.
 
Further future engagements include, among others, Lucio Silla in Brussels, La Calisto at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich and Teatro Real de Madrid, La Clemenza di Tito in Warsaw and Liège, Handel’s Ottone in Moscow, and Donizetti’s Enrico di Borgogna in Bergamo, Italy as well as Agrippina at The Grange Festival.
