The music

A programme to make you dizzy with a dose of contagious good humour! 

The gilded figures and other golden Atlanteans which adorn the Victoria Hall may well start dancing or feeling sorry for themselves at the joys and miseries sung by the great Peruvian tenor, Juan Diego Flórez ! Accompanied by one of the English princes of the baton, Daniel Harding, a festive menu of arias from famous operas celebrates love in all its forms: Florville's tenderness (Il Signor Bruschino), Nemorino's hope (L'Elisir d'amore), Idreno's latent jealousy (Semiramide), Marcello's misfortune (Il Duca d'Alba), Prince Sou-Chong's confession in one of Franz Lehar's most famous arias (The Land of Smiles), a lesson in seduction from a great virtuoso (Paganini), the optimistic vision of Captain Octavio's life (Giuditta), the intrepid warrior Mylo's farewell to his belle (Le Roi d'Ys), Don José's disappointment (Carmen), the incurable melancholy of a young German romantic (Werther) or the love at first sight of an impoverished poet for his suffering neighbour (La Bohème).

This vocal map of tenderness is punctuated by overtures and instrumental extracts to help us recover from our emotions !
