Milan’s opera house La Scala has announced a new baroque project with Cecilia Bartoli. The singer agreed to be part of three Handel operas over the next three seasons, in the autumn of 2019 (Cleopatra in Giulio Cesare in Egitto), 2020 (Semele in English) and 2021 (Ariodante).

Bartoli sang several times at La Scala in the 1990s; her last appearance was in 2012, when she was booed by the upper balconies of the tiered theatre.
