The contralto voice has become a relatively rare phenomenon, with most of these lower-pitched opera roles assigned rather to star countertenors and mezzo-sopranos. With her ensemble Orfeo 55, Nathalie Stutzmann shines a light on these dazzling voices of the Baroque: https://w.lnk.to/nscLY

In the 18th century, these deep-voiced female singers were often placed in the shade by the extravagant presence and talents of castrato singers like Farinelli, Senesino, Carestini, and Caffarelli. However, as Nathalie points out, "The great opera composers of the early 18th century saw the female contralto as the equal of the male castrato."
