   ... Sara Mingardo sang the magnificent Nisi Dominus at the Wigmore Hall weaving a spell that captivated the audience ... 
James Edward Hughes

SARA MINGARDO, one of the authentic contralto rarest voices in the current music scenario, was born in Venice and studied at the Venice Conservatory with Franco Ghitti.

After standing out in numerous national and international contests, in 1987 she made her first appearance in the role of Fidalma in the "Matrimonio segreto" by Cimarosa and in the main role in the "Cenerentola" by Rossini. She has regularly been invited to some of the most important Italian music institutions.

She was also invited to perform to Salzburg Festival, Glyndeboume, Osterklang Klangbogen, Vienna Festival, Beaune, Montreaux-Vevey, Aix-en-Provence, Montpellier, Bregenz, Dresden, and Schwetzingen.

She regularly cooperates with great orchestra directors such as Claudio Abbado, Ivor Bolton, Riccardo Chailly, Myung Whun-Chung, Colin Davis, John Eliot Gardiner, Riccardo Muti, Roger Norrington, Trevor Pinnock, Christophe Rousset, Jordi Savall, Peter Schreier, Jeffrey Tate and with the main international orchestras, such as Berliner Philarmoniker, Monteverdi Choir Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre National de France, Les Musiciens du Luvre, and Les Talens Lyriques.

In May, 2007 she performed, for the first time, the Wesendonck Lieder by Wagner, in a tour with the Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart and Roger Norrington.

In November, 2007 she performed the Stabat Mater by Pergolesi with Claudio Abbado and the Orchestra Mozart in Bologna. In 2010, she plays the role of Andronico, in Tamerlano by Georg Friedrich Händel, at Royal Opera House of London.
