Arias For Nancy Storace book.

Her father Stefano, a professional musician, nurtured her precocious vocal abilities by providing an excellent musical education-although he may have helped shorten her career by encouraging her to sing difficult arias in public before she reached maturity.

Anna (or Ann) Selina Storace, known as Nancy Storace (Italian: ; 27 October 1765 – 24 August 1817), was an English operatic soprano

Anna (or Ann) Selina Storace, known as Nancy Storace (Italian: ; 27 October 1765 – 24 August 1817), was an English operatic soprano. The role of Susanna in Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro was written for and first performed by her. Born in London, her singing career as a child prodigy began in England by the age of 12. This led to further study in Italy and to a successful singing career there during the late 1770s.

Mozart particularly admired Storace, and wrote several works for he. Storace suffered a nervous breakdown, and temporarily withdrew from the stage

Mozart particularly admired Storace, and wrote several works for her. Whilst in Vienna she married a musician called John Abraham Fisher, who was abusive. Storace was pregnant with Fisher’s child, a daughter born in 1785, but who did not survive. Storace suffered a nervous breakdown, and temporarily withdrew from the stage. Her return was celebrated by Mozart, Salieri and an unknown composer called Cornetti. This was when she famously starred as Susanna in the premiere of Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro. Shortly after this Storace returned to England, joining the company at the King’s Theatre.
