Rolando Villazón & Ildar Abdrazakov

Italian and French opera evening

  • Sun26November18:00 H

Rolando Villazón is giving another aria recital at last! And is bringing someone along with him: Russian singer Ildar Abdrazakov, whose dark bass voice is currently in great demand on international opera stages. Together they will be singing selections from the French and Italian aria repertoire – naturally along with duets, which have a charm of their own. A concert featuring men singing by themselves is not something you encounter every day; a lot of time had to pass before the tenor finally displaced the castrati from the opera stage. And as a duet? Here instead of flirtation, we have struggle and celebration; friends become enemies and vice versa. Composers often honored such moments with exceptional music – and tonight you can look forward to the most priceless gems of this repertoire. We’ll be hearing arias, duets, and instrumental works from the French and Italian opera repertoire, including Faust, Mefistofele and L’elisir d’amore.
