In the following year, she won RAI’s “Voci Verdiane” award. Between 1972 and 1975, engagements followed in the major European and American opera houses including Lyric Opera of Chicago (1972); La Scala (1973); Royal Opera House Covent Garden (1974); and the Metropolitan Opera in 1975. In 1981, when she began a decade-long association with the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro, thus broadening her repertoire of Rossini’s operas.

Beside her many opera performances, she also appeared as Desdemona in Franco Zeffirelli’s film version of Verdi's Otello in 1986 alongside Plácido Domingo.
