Gilda Cruz Romo--soprano LIVE Unknown recording information ================================ Gilda Cruz-Romo is without a doubt the most significant soprano that Mexico has given to the world, with a brilliant career as a performer of the highest level in all major international stages, comprising more than thirty years of professional activity. Since her debut in 1962 at the Palace of Fine Arts in Mexico City, until her farewell recital in 1999, her magnificent spinto soprano voice, high volume and unmistakable timbre, her impeccable musicianship, her expressive capacity, histrionic ability and physical beauty, placed her in a prominent place among the singers of her time. In her repertoire of over forty operatic roles, Verdi’s roles always occupied a prominent place, and Ms. Cruz-Romo soon established herself as one of the leading exponents of Giuseppe Verdi of the nineteen seventies and eighties. Cruz-Romo was invited by all great opera houses in the world be them the Palais Garnier in Paris, La Fenice in Venice, the Colon in Buenos Aires or the Liceu in Barcelona, to give her voice to Elvira (Ernani), Odabella (Attila), Lady Macbeth (Macbeth), Luisa (Luisa Miller), Leonora (Il Trovatore), Violetta (La Traviata), Amelia (Un ballo in Maschera), Leonora di Vargas (La forza del Destino), Elisabetta (Don Carlo), Aida (Aida) and Desdemona (Otello), and of course to sing the solos in Verdi’s Messa da Requiem.
