OPERA GALA - THE SHOW IS ABOUT TO BEGIN
Saturday 1st June 2013 h. 20:30
Three tenors for the 100 years of the Festival
A unique and unrepeatable experience, it will be an evening entirely dedicated to melodrama and to those extraordinary operatic arias and romances which have shaped the myth of opera through history.
The most renowned and striking moments of these operas will be performed for this centennial edition of the Festival: Aida, Nabucco, La Traviata, Il Trovatore, Messa Da Requiem, Rigoletto, Romeo Et Juliette.
The television preview of the Arena Opera Festival, will be hosted by Antonella Clerici and will be broadcast live on the Raiuno channel which is the main national television channel of Rai Radiotelevisione Italiana.
It will be a unique and impressive setting, the protagonists being the Choir and Orchestra who will perform under the masterful direction of Conductors Julian Kovatchev, Marcello Rota and Plácido Domingo, along with all the performers – a company of over 500 artists – in their splendid costumes; a “live” performance, a spectacle within the spectacle; the Arena will be in its full operatic configuration, with the stone terraces prominently in sight and the settings created by majestic lighting effects as well as personalized scenography for each opera.
The show will be dedicated to the memory of Luciano Pavarotti, so to mark the occasion there will be the Veronese début of the international exhibition “AMO PAVAROTTI” (I love Pavarotti); the special guest of the evening will be Nicoletta Mantovani Pavarotti.
