2 contraltos for now and 1 for later

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when someone says contralto? For me it’s Vivaldi:

How awesome is this aria? “Awesomer” is only:

Whenever I hear these arias I really, really want to be a contralto myself, drop from acuti to the chest register and thrash things on stage as mad Orlando 😀

…but in all seriousness I’m just getting pumped for hearing Stutzmann sing some wrist-slashing Handel contralto arias (because, unlike Vivaldi, that’s what Handel usually gives his lowest voiced ladies).
