    One tenor is good; two even better! Lawrence Brownlee and Michael Spyres, magnificent singers who both have the added merit of being great Rossini specialists, share the stage of the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées for an exceptional evening. The musical direction is entrusted to David Stern, at the head of his ensemble Opera Fuoco. The programme features arias and duets from the masterpieces of 19th century Italian and French bel canto, not without incorporating a few welcome rarities. After a first part which is 100% Rossini and promises to be very enjoyable (excerpts from Il Barbiere di Siviglia and Elisabetta, regina from Inghilterra, but also from Zelmira or Ricciardo e Zoraide), the singers will perform some of the most beautiful pages of the repertoire, including some of the most famous such as "Je crois entendre encore" (Bizet, Les Pêcheurs de perles) and "La donna è mobile" (Verdi, Rigoletto). Meyerbeer, Boieldieu and Adolphe Adam will rub shoulders with Verdi and Donizetti: a panorama cleverly arranged to highlight the unfailing virtuosity of the two most gifted American tenors of their generation.
