Christina Maria Avoglio or Avolia (floruit, 1740–1744) was an Italian soprano in Handel's opera company. She arrived in London by 1740 and appeared in both the Dublin and London premieres of Messiah in 1741 and 1743 respectively (in Dublin she was one of the few non-cathedral singers in the performance[1]). She also appeared in the premiere casts of Samson (1743) and Semele (1744).
