FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Toronto, ON. December 11, 2008

Due to the very high demand for tickets to Cecilia Bartoli's concert on March 1 at 2:00 pm, Roy Thomson Hall is pleased to announce that Ms. Bartoli has agreed to perform a 2nd concert the same day at 7:00 PM. Tickets go on sale to the public on Monday, December 15 at 10 AM.

Cecilia Bartoli is one of the worldĺ─˘s most cherished and celebrated classical artists and undisputedly the most famous mezzo-soprano of her generation. Her two upcoming recitals, 2 PM and 7 PM, at Roy Thomson Hall on March 1, 2009 celebrate the life and roles of 19th century opera diva Maria Malibran (1808-1836), a superstar of her era and muse for such composers as Rossini and Donizetti.

Ms. Bartoli is joined by the 25-member Orchestra La Scintilla of Zł║rich Opera, a distinguished period instrument ensemble, for a program drawn from Ms. Bartoliĺ─˘s award-winning album Maria, and includes works by Garcia, Persiani, Mendelssohn, Rossini, Donizetti, Balfe, Beriot and Malibran. The orchestra will be led by concertmaster Ada Pesch.

The 2 PM performance is sponsored by RBC Financial Group.
