Elena Lo Forte

The soprano Elena Lo Forte studied violin before starting voice training, winning various international competitions, including the 'Mattia Battistini', the 'Mario Del Monaco' and the 'Umberto Giordano'. Following her debut as Santuzza in Mascagni's Cavalleria rusticana in various Italian opera houses, she went on to sing, among other roles, Nedda in Leoncavallo's Pagliacci and the title role in Puccini's Tosca in Rome, Giorgetta in Puccini's Il tabarro in Sassari, the solo voice in a world premiere of a work by Roberto De Simone at San Carlo in Naples and La Scala in Milan, Desdemona in Verdi's Otello on tour in the United States and later in various Italian houses, including the Teatro Massimo in Palermo. Over the years she also studied drama and has often worked in theatre, television and cinema both as a singer and an actress, with directors such as Francis Ford Coppola, Mario Monicelli and Gigi Proietti. She has a large repertoire which includes the major Puccini heroines and is now especially oriented towards Verdi lirico-spinto roles such as Lady Macbeth in Macbeth, Amelia in Un ballo in maschera and the title role in Aida.
