Their love blossomed over a delightful Elixir d’amour by Donizetti at Covent Garden a few seasons ago. French audiences have long enjoyed the talents of the French tenor, but Paris has also taken to its heart his Polish partner who has already built up an impressive career on major stages, notably the Metropolitan in New York and Covent Garden. Their superb full timbres and strong but sparkling personalities are sure to captivate us in this programme devoted to Puccini.
