    Good and interesting news but why highlight the silly photo of her?

    • Stuart says:

      In line with her tribute album to Farinelli, she puts on facial hair which, for reasons of his physical circumstances, Farinelli would not have had.

      • Maria Jose Pascual says:

        It’s from “Ariodante”, Whitsun Festival in Salzburg 2018…..and you’re right, it’s a silly photo.

  • Alexander says:

    Ceci is always a good girl ( as Renée and Anna and some other good sopranos 😉 )

  • Nick says:

    Greatest singer we have today. She puts a world of emotion into every note.

  • John Borstlap says:

    She is getting more & more careless, now even forgetting to shave in the morning before appearing on stage.

  • Melisande says:

    No, no, because due to poor revenues she ran out of razor blades.

    • Alexander says:

      in line of what Norman said on CAMI and big agencies future, Ceci will always be with revenues, cause she is of “elite boutique business” way of singing
      PS just my opinion , of course 😉
