Orchestra of the Arena di Verona
Mihaela Marcu (Soprano), Davide Luciano (Baritone)
In the imposing Arena di Verona, soprano Sonya Yoncheva and tenor Vittorio Grigolo present an evening of the most beautiful operatic love arias and duets in opera history with dramatic and passionate synergy
Passion that burns, consumes and sometimes kills is the central theme of this concert with arias from Roméo et Juliette by Charles Gounod as well as from Puccini’s Tosca, La Bohème, Madama Butterfly and Verdi’s La Traviata, all conducted by Plácido Domingo. Sonya Yoncheva has the full and vibrant timbre of a true lyric soprano, while Vittorio Grigolo, like Cavaradossi and Rodolfo, plays the cards of passion and fervour with sweet and tender colours. A thoroughly successful evening.
