A final majestic act to end our great World Opera Day concert, organised in collaboration with Opera Europa, Opera for Peace, Opera America and Ópera Latinoamérica, on a high note.


America hosts this last act, with presenters Lisette Oropesa and Lawrence Brownlee, and prominent performers Brian Jagde, René Barbera and Denyce Graves. Peter Sellars delivers a heartfelt message from California, while Raehann Bryce-Davis voices a tribute to the Afflicted from Dallas. The concert concludes with a sublime Mozart trio and a headlong Beethoven finale.
