Contents Contents: Foreword-- Introduction: 'The Mingotti': a diva in the making-- London opera: buildings, impresarios, repertoires, finances-- Mingotti in London-- London opera between and Mingotti redux-- Appendices-- Select bibliography-- Index. Born in Naples in , she was the daughter of an Austrian diplomat, and had worked at Dresden under Hasse from Mingotti left Germany in , and travelled to Madrid to sing at the Spanish court, where the opera was directed by the great castrato, Farinelli.
It is not known quite how Francesco Vanneschi, the opera promoter, came to hire Mingotti, but in travelling to England via Paris , she was announced as being engaged for the opera in London 'having been admired at Naples and other parts of Italy, by all the Connoisseurs, as much for the elegance of her voice as that of her features'.
Michael Burden offers the first considered survey of Mingotti's London years, including material on Mingotti's publication activities, and the identification of the characters in the key satirical print 'The Idol'. Burden makes a significant contribution to the knowledge and understanding of eighteenth-century singers' careers and status, and discusses the management, the finance, the choice of repertory, and the pasticcio practice at The King's Theatre, Haymarket during the middle of the eighteenth century.
Burden also argues that Mingotti's years with Farinelli influenced her understanding of drama, fed her appreciation of Metastasio, and were partly responsible for London labelling her a 'female Garrick'. The book includes the important publication of the complete texts of both of Mingotti's Appeals to the Publick, accounts of the squabble between Mingotti and Vanneschi, which shed light on the role a singer could play in the replacement of arias.
