Francesca Cuzzoni, Haendel’s first Cleopatra and Rodelinda, was one of the most famous sopranos of the Baroque period — not to mention the famous rival of Faustina Bordoni, the wife of Johann Hasse. During our musical archaeology, we have researched some of her lesser-known roles for your listening pleasure.
