Roberto Alagna, one of the greatest voices of this generation and the most charismatic artist working in opera today, will perform in Brisbane on Saturday July 30 in a one-off extraordinary concert with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra. The concert is part of Roberto Alagna's debut tour of Australia and WeekendNotes has two B-reserve tickets to giveaway! The tickets retail for $148 each!
This is a rare chance to hear this magnificent Italian/French tenor, one of the most sought after opera stars in the world who performs on the world's greatest opera and concert stages and is invited to perform at the most prestigious festivals.
Roberto Alagna is a unique tenor with smouldering good looks and an extraordinary background, marked by tragedy and turbulence, and ultimately, incredible success. But unlike most other tenors he has a performing background in cabaret – and that gives him the ability to cross the boundaries.
For Australian audiences Mr Alagna has created a program that will truly showcase his sublime instrument. As well as performing some of the great operatic arias, he will sing popular songs that reflect his Sicilian, Neapolitan and French musical background.
Roberto Alagna's career spans over 30 years; he has a repertoire of more than 60 roles (including two operas which were composed specifically for him) and his diverse discography is one of the richest that exists, boasting numerous gold, platinum and double-platinum sellers. He is also one of the opera world's most intriguing and fascinating characters.
Mr Alagna will be supported on this tour by a young German-based Australian soprano Siobhan Stagg, who has quickly established herself as a rising star of the opera and concert stage.
