Opening Gala with Elīna Garanča. Excerpts from operas by: Giuseppe Verdi, Giacomo Puccini, Francesco Cilea, Federico Chueca y Robres, Edvard Grieg, Stanislao Gastaldon, Franz von Suppé, Mato/Castelao, Carlos Gardel, Jerónimo Giménez y Bellido, Pablo Sorozába
Elīna Garanča thrilled La Scala and the Viennese Opera, and now it’s the turn of the Koningin Elisabethzaal: together with the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, this international Latvian star kicks off the new concert season.
The beautiful mezzo-soprano leaves no-one unmoved and her gracious stage presence is a sight for sore eyes. In September, Garanča will seduce you with the most exquisite arias, and thanks to the phenomenal acoustics of the Elisabethzaal they will sound like never before.
