The Handel Prize of the City of Halle, awarded by the Handel House Foundation, will go to the Italian mezzo-soprano Anna Bonitatibus in 2023. This was announced by the foundation. In doing so, the Board of Trustees honored the boundless enthusiasm with which the singer has been interpreting Handel’s music for years, as well as her passionate commitment, which leads to the performance of even lesser-known works.

Anna Bonitatibus was born in the Basilicata region of Potenza in southern Italy. Since her debut at La Scala in Milan in 1999 in Don Giovanni, she has performed a wide range of early Baroque and Bel Canto works and more than 70 operas with internationally renowned conductors and directors. By G. F. Handel alone, she has already participated in ten operas.
