Founded in 1983 in Ravenna, the Accademia Bizantina is one of the most 
important musical ensembles in the Italian
musical world. According to its honorary president, Luciano Berio, "It is 
the finest existing example in Italy of how to make music together, whether 
it be baroque, Mozart or modern composers". The Accademia has taken part in 
international festivals and performed extensively in Italy and around the 
world. It has won recognition as being one of the most refined groups with 
a Seventeenth and Eighteenth century Italian repertoire. Since January 1996 
the musicians have entrusted the role of Musical Director to the most 
prominent  harpsichordist in Italy, OTTAVIO DANTONE, who has been with the 
ensemble since 1989. Soprano ANNA CATERINA ANTONACCI started her career 
winning the "Verdi", "Maria Callas" and "Pavarotti" International Awards in 
1987 and 1988. Her extraordinary talent has given her the ability to 
perform a large and eclectic  repertoire. She has sung at the Teatro alla 
Scala, the Colon Theater of Buenos Aires and at the Bayerische Staatsoper, 
at the Opera of Rome, the San Francisco Opera and at the Festival of 
Glyndebourne. Ms. Antonacci inaugurated the 1997/98     concert season of 
the Teatro alla Scala under the direction of Riccardo Muti. This season Ms. 
Antonacci has performed  Adalgisa in "Norma" at the San Francisco Opera 
  and Donna Elvira in " Don  Giovanni" at the Teatro alla Scala.
