Interview of Yana Radilova with the impresario Rosario Bella


The job of the typical impresario is to organise and finance concerts, plays or operas. Rosario Bella is an excellent example of this kind of job. In 1986 he sets up the organization Brosmusic Italia and since then hundreds of concerts with soloists, chamber ensembles and symphonic orhestras have been organized. For six years, from 1997 to 2002, Rosario Bella organized Musicastello – an international festival for chamber music, played in different castles in the district of Etna. Since 2008 he has held the international festival for chamber music “Places and memory”.

Rosario has worked on the list of events, such as Easter and Christmas. A number of concerts have taken place in Catania, Siracusa, Ragusa, Mesina and many other places.

The singers and instrumentalists, included in his company, are Claudia Caia (soprano), Rayna Karjieva (piano), Victoria Macijewska (violin), Irina Radilova (soprano), Trio Samofalov (violin, violoncello, fisharmonika), Zaruhi Topchyan (piano accompanist), Olga Caia (soprano), Vera Lizzio (piano), Moravia Quartet (string quartet), Alexander Rengatch (guitar), Svetlana Spasova (piano).

Rosario Bella, you have devoted a big part of your life to the opera. How did you become so fascinated by this kind of scenic art?

I was fascinated by opera and classical music because my father teached me to love and appreciate this music.

What inspired you to set up the organization Brosmusic Italy?

The reason was to help young singers and musicians to find the right road and give them a chance. Brosmusic means Bella (B) and Rosario (Ros).


What qualities are needed for an artist to be included in your organization?

To be a nice singer or musician, talented and proud to be an artist of mine.


Where do the concerts take place?

In Italy, Spain and Germany.

Do you think Italy is the country where opera is most popular?

Yes, of course. The main reason is because Italy is the homeland of Giacomo Puccini, Giuseppe Verdi, Gioachino Rossini, Vincenzo Bellini and so on.


Does opera have future in Europe?

At the moment, as you know, the European economical situation is bad and the first thing that the politicians do is cut the expenses necessary for culture. But, as I think that opera and classical music are essential for the growth of people, I am sure they will never collapse.

Give advice to all talented youths who want to become world-famous opera singers.

Study and study! And never be sure that you have achieved your goals.
