After the success of Grand Operatic Concert in 2011, the Classique Foundation will be presenting another concert in this series, GRAND OPERATIC CONCERT 2014 – a gala evening that brings opera music close to the hearts of the people together in one night. The programme line-up is set to include arias and duets from the most popular operas by Verdi, Puccini, Boito, Donizetti, Giordano, Catalani, and Ponchielli amongst others. It will also feature overtures and ballet music from the operatic repertoire by Berlioz, Rossini, Bizet and Saint-Saens.
Ever committed to enhanced standards, the Classique Foundation has once again engaged the services of two internationally-renowned singers, soprano NORMA FANTINI and tenor LUCIANO GANCI - both of whom are household names at important opera houses around the world such as the Metropolitan Opera House (New York), ROH Covent Garden (London), Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna), Deutsche Staatsoper (Berlin), Gran Teatre del Liceu (Barcelona), Mariinsky Theatre (St. Petersburg), and Teatro alla Scala (Milan). The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra (leader: Marcelline Agius) will be under the baton of the music/artistic director and mentor of the Foundation, Joseph Debrincat who is an established name in the local musical circles, particularly in the field of opera.
Grand Operatic Concert 2014 will be held on Saturday, 8th Novemeber, 2014 at 19:30hrs at the Aurora Opera House, Victoria – Gozo and will be under the distinguished patronage of H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, President of Malta.
