“She remains a superbly musical singer, phrasing with simple elegance and ornamenting the melodies gracefully and discreetly.” Observer

Mariella Devia is an artist that has always remained “…firmly dedicated to the purity of line and technical finish” New York Classical Review throughout a career that began an astonishing 43 years ago. Having quickly found operatic fame in her home country of Italy, following her 1973 stage debut, Devia became a staple performer at the most famous and revered opera houses across the globe. During a long running engagement with the Metropolitan Opera, between 1979 and 1994, Devia also performed at La Scala, Milan, the Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona, and London's Royal Opera House, at which time she “…underwent a reputational transformation from respected to revered” The New York Times. In June 2014, she made her celebrated return to Carnegie Hall, New York for a sole performance of Donizetti’s Roberto Devereux, a recital that was met with rapture from the audience and critics alike, leading the Observer to crown Devia “…a monarch who has reigned for more than four decades.”
