Description

The art of Giacomo Puccini is universally popular and this collection features performances of his music from Vienna. As you’d expect from a Puccini collection, we’ll enjoy all the most famous tunes. The beauty of the Orchestra is matched by Andrea’s passionate conducting and we’ll hear from some of Italy’s finest singers as they perform the Intermezzo from Manon Lescaut, the heartbreaking Death of Mimi from La Boheme and Recondita Armonica and Vissi D’Arte from Tosca. No Puccini collection would be complete without featuring Turandot. The children’s chorus will join the stage for the famous La Sui Monti Dell’Est and the music continues with In Questa Reggia. To finish off, we’ll hear the world famous arias, O Mio Babbino Cara and Nessun Dorma, sung by a cantata of tenors in the Golden Hall.
