The intensive study with Pianists like Laszlo Gyimesi, Fernande Kaeser at the “Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Stuttgart”and singers like Yumi Koyama and Maria Zahlten Hall (pupil of Lotte Lehmann) as well as performing with the team of André Rieu were crucial for her career as an artist.

Angelo Raciti – Now leading the Festival:
“If I wouldn’t have worked with Maria Zahlten-Hall and Irene Xander, I would still be an unsuccessful BARITONE, who studied English and German Literature, singing as a hobby never knowing that my voice is brilliant and shining as a TENOR – I changed my repertoire and found out that I have Leadershipqualities in addition… I had no idea… Now I am Artistic Director of the Lotte Lehmann Woche since 2003 and have main roles at all the prestigious theaters and stages in Germany."
