Italian mezzo-soprano Anna Bonitatibus has established herself as one of opera's greatest interpreters of the Italian repertoire, from Monteverdi's earliest works to the operas of Rossini and Donizetti. In recent years, Bonitatibus has emerged not simply as a singer but a vital musicologist, who has helped rediscover previously forgotten composers and their music, both through her championing them as a performer and through her music publishing company, Consonarte. In a wide-ranging interview with Stepan Atamian, Bonitatibus discusses her latest album of Beethoven's rarely heard Italian songs, along with her professional singing career and her commitment to reexamining Italian vocal music.
