ITALIAN OPERA EXCERPTS (article first published : 2005-06-9)

A highlight of the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra’s World Symphony Series Winter Season is the concert on June 9, which will satiate opera-lovers’ appetites with excerpts from treasured Italian masterpieces.

The programme includes works from Puccini’s Madame Butterfly and Tosca; Verdi’s Otello, Nabucco, Rigoletto, La Forza del Destino, Un Ballo in Maschera, I Vespri Siciliani and Luisa Miller; Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia; Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana and Giordano’s Andrea Chenier.

The four accomplished Italian performers - conductor Armando Tasso, Daniela Longhi (soprano) Cesare Catani (tenor) and Fabio Previati (baritone) - are sponsored by Arena di Verona, the largest operatic theatre in the world, in association with the Italian Institute of Culture, Pretoria, and the Italian Consulate, Durban. Also on stage at this glittering event will be talented South African baritone, Nicholas Ndadane.

The concert takes place in the Durban City Hall at 19h30. Booking is at Computicket.
