Born in Florence, the soprano Maria Costanza Nocentini studied with Suzanne Danco and graduated with honors and laude from the Conservatory of Bologna. As part of the Mozart-Da Ponte project directed by M ° Claudio Desderi, she made her debut as Despina in Cosi ‘fan tutte, as Susanna in Nozze di Figaro and as Zerlina in Don Giovanni, works performed in Italy and abroad.

In 1992 she won the “Toti Dal Monte” International Competition in Treviso and the “Viotti” International Competition in Vercelli, before winning the second prize at the “Francisco Viñas” International Competition in Barcelona, in addition to the special prize for the best interpretation of the works by Rossini and the extraordinary “Miguel Cervantes” award.

Her repertoire includes leading roles in works from the seventeenth to the twentieth century.
