OPERATIC DELIGHT (article first published : 2006-05-28)

The KZN Philharmonic Orchestra’s next WSS concert in the Winter Season is Operatic Delight on June 1.

Lovers of opera can satiate their appetite with excerpts from beloved Italian masterpieces. The KZNPO once again joins forces with the Arena di Verona, the largest outdoor operatic venue in the world. The programme features selected arias from, among others, Puccini’s Manon Lescaut, Giordano’s Andrea Chenier and Cilea’s Adriana Lecouvreur.

Conductor Armando Tasso and soloists Daniela Longhi (soprano) and Luigi Frattola (tenor) have been brought to Durban for the concert from the Arena di Verona courtesy of the Italian Institute of Culture, Pretoria, and the Italian Consulate, Durban.

Every WSS concert is preceded by a musically illustrated introductory talk presented by the KZNPO in association with the Friends of Music. These talks take place at the Royal Hotel at 18h15 before the concert and are designed to enlighten and entertain. The speakers are each an authority on their subject. Admission R25 pp includes light refreshments.

Operatic Delight takes place at 19h30 on June 1 in the Durban City Hall. Book at Computicket.
