30th Anniversary Spotlight: Marcia Ragonetti
One of Colorado’s hardest working “divas”—and only the nicest connotation of the word applies here—mezzo-soprano Marcia Ragonetti is almost always sure to pop up somewhere in the state. From opera to symphonic concerts to oratorio, from musical theater to cabaret to “legit” theatre with an operatic theme, Marcia truly embodies Floria Tosca’s famous aria “Vissi d’arte,” or “I lived for art.”
“What the next 30 years hold for me is an unknown. What I DO know is I cherish my many memories --and opportunities to shine -- on the Opera Colorado stage. Here’s to many more re-incarnations together since there so many notes left to share. Happy Anniversary, Opera Colorado!”
Opera Colorado is delighted to welcome Marcia back home, where she will appear as Gertrude, Juliet’s nurse in Romeo and Juliet.
A life and a home on the wicked stage. As Marcia likes to say: “It’s just what I was supposed to do.”
