Teresa Berganza dedicated a big part of her career to Rosini and Mozart, but she also fall in love with the barroco style and, from a very young age, she showed interest to that repertoire pretty forgotten at that time. That was the way her debuts of Incoronazione, Alcina, Orontea or Rinaldo came.
The French Opera was also one of her big loves. Apart from the Bizet’s Carmen, Mignon and, above all, Werther’s Charlotte, they softened with her voice.
Despite raising the highest ever dreamed by an artist, the Salzburg Festival in 1972 directed by Karajan and Ponelle, Teresa will never forget her part as Cherubino at Aix-en-Provence, where the team work and the lovely advices she got from Hans Rosbaud allowed her to get the essence for the career of a lyrical artist.
