The best pieces from the greatest operas
Classical music may be popular. The evidence is this concert, which brings together chorus, arias, duets and quartets from the great operas of Verdi, converted into true popular hymns.
Verdi gave voice to the people and made them protagonists: from the Triumphal March of Aida, when the troops return victoriously from the battle, or the chorus of gypsies from Il Trovatore, who sing their joyness, until the “Va Pensiero” from Nabucco, the song of the oppressed Jewish slaves, became a symbol of unified Italy under the Habsburgs, universal anthem of the freedom of the people. The program also includes fragments and pieces from other major opera titles such as Don Giovanni, Nabucco and La Traviata with their lavish toast.
The Ukrainian State Symphony Orchestra and Choir, with their enormous artistic quality, will bring life to this spectacular tribute to the genial Italian composer.
