ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE
The concert opens with the symphony of The Force of Destiny followed by one of the most poignant arias of the opera, the heartfelt “Peace, Peace my God” entrusted to the interpretation of Clarissa Costanzo, soprano from Caserta, just graduated from the Academy Scaligera.
So it is Ettore Chi Hoon Lee who wears the role of Renato, blinded by resentment in “Eri tu” from Act III of A Masked Ball ; the Korean baritone, also a recent graduate, has already distinguished himself in his first roles on the stage of the Teatro alla Scala, as in Don Magnifico in Rossini’s Cenerentola .
After the Nabucco Symphony , the 31-year-old Azer Zada ex pupil, one of the most sought-after and esteemed tenors of his generation, sings the famous romance “Celeste Aida”. Azer Zada, despite his young career, has already brilliantly dressed the roles of the great operatic repertoire – Cavaradossi, Radamès, Rodolfo, Alfredo, Don Josè, Pinkerton – collaborating with directors of absolute depth such as Zubin Mehta, Riccardo Muti, Myung-Whun Chung , Riccardo Chailly, in prestigious theaters, in Italy and abroad.
Two intense moments of Il Trovatore follow . Azucena’s dramatic aria, Stride la vampa , is interpreted by Martina Serra, a mezzo-soprano from Cagliari, fresh from the recent success in Sassari in Madama Butterfly. Clarissa Costanzo and Ettore Chi Hoon Lee are instead engaged in the duet between Leonora and the Count di Luna “Udiste? … Mira, of bitter tears ”, another proof of notable drama.
The Academy orchestra then performs the Intermezzo from Giacomo Puccini’s Manon Lescaut , followed by Martina Serra, Azer Zada and Ettore Chi Hoon Lee in the trio “Who is? … I know that to his pains… Farewell, fiorito asil ”from the III Act of Madama Butterfly .
And the homage to the Italian opera tradition could not end except with the Brindisi della Traviata .
