About Lucia Valentini Terrani:

Lucia Valentini Terrani (29 August 1946 in Padua – 11 June 1998 in Seattle) was an Italian coloratura mezzo-soprano, particularly associated with Rossini roles.

Born Lucia Valentini, she studied first at the Padua Music Conservatory, and later at the Conservatory Benedetto Marcello in Venice. She made her stage debut in Brescia, as Angelina in La cenerentola, a role with which she would remain closely associated throughout her career.She made her debut at La Scala in 1973, again as Angelina, and quickly established herself in the Rossini repertoire, singing in L'italiana in Algeri, Il barbiere di Siviglia, Il viaggio a Reims. She also sang the many "trouser roles" such as Tancredi, Malcolm in La donna del lago, Pippo in La gazza ladra, Calbo in Maometto secondo, Arsace in Semiramide, Isolier in Le comte Ory, etc. She also sang a few roles of the baroque repertory, notably Medea in Cavalli's Giasone, Dido in Purcell's Dido and Aeneas, Alcina in Vivaldi's Orlando furioso, and Bradamante in Handel's Alcina. However, she did not restrict herself to the belcanto and expanded her repertoire to include roles such as Eboli, Quickly, Mignon, Carmen, Charlotte, Dulcinée, Marina and Jocasta.

She enjoyed a very successful international career, appearing in Paris, Moscow, Buenos Aires, Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington, etc. She made her Metropolitan Opera debut in 1974, as Isabella L'italiana in Algeri, and in 1976 she "caused a furore" at Covent Garden performing La cenerentola with the La Scala company.
