VERDI CENTENARY GALA CONCERT (article first published : 2001-06-21)

The year 2001 heralds the centenary of the death of Giuseppe Verdi. This centenary represents an occasion of remarkable importance in the international cultural field and is being celebrated all over the world with events involving the arts as well as political and corporate spheres.

The music of Verdi has become a common heritage for humanity. His work brings together people of all races and cultures, who find in his music an extraordinary ethical and moral message. His music has become an instrument of unity and brotherhood in the name of freedom.

The Embassy of Italy, the Italian Institute of Culture, and Fiat Auto SA, the main sponsor, are proud to present a prestigious Verdi Centenary Celebration Concert featuring the internationally acclaimed Italian soprano, Denia Mazzola Gavazzeni. The KZN Philharmonic and its conductor laureate Dr David Tidboald will perform concerts in Cape Town, Durban and Pretoria.

The Durban concert is on August 18 in the Playhouse, at 19h30. Performing with the KZN Philharmonic will be the Durban Symphonic Choir, East Coast Choristers and Music Paragons.
