Vesselina Kasarova, a Bulgarian mezzo-soprano, has been long regarded as one of the world greatest operatic mezzo-sopranos, both as a singer and an accomplished actress. Vesselina Kasarova's early roles included most of the big Mozart characters. More recently, Vesselina Kasarova became a devoted Handel's singer as well as other baroque composers. She, however, never abandoned the original mezzo repertoire, and lately sang Carmen, in Munich, with a great success. Eboli and Dalila will soon follow.
Kasarova is without equal as a bell canto master. The London audiences admired her Rossini role: Edoardo in Matilde di Shabran, together with Juan Diego Flórez.
