The magnificent voices and temperaments of Olga Peretyatko and Karine Deshayes for an evening devoted to the Queens of bel canto.
Rossini, Donizetti, Bellini Arias and duets
What better repertoire than bel canto to showcase the most beautiful voices? The dazzling virtuosity of the writing of the operas by Rossini, Bellini and Donizetti explains the unfailing popularity of the arias that they imagined to make the performers shine above all else. It is to embody these tragic and resplendent heroines, icons of nineteenth-century Italian masterpieces, that Olga Peretyatko and Karine Deshayes take to the stage tonight for a recital with orchestra alternating arias and mythical duets. While the former, now world-famous Russian soprano, received the ECHO Klassik Prize for the best solo album of the year for her album Rossini! released in 2015 and accumulates triumphs as Anna Bolena or Lucia, the latter, a French mezzo-soprano who cannot be ignored, has been excelling for years in the major roles of Rossini (Angelina, Rosina, Elena...).
