Celebration Concert Act II

This performance is no longer viewable as video-on-demand for rights reasons but other material about the production is still available.

Let’s continue to celebrate World Opera Day with the second act of our celebration concert, curated in collaboration with Opera for Peace – Leading Young Voices of the World.

Starting in Moscow, Act II contrasts tuneful Donizetti with dramatic Gluck sung by Korean Hyesang Park and American Anthony Roth Costanzo, alongside a thrilling duet from Verdi’s Rigoletto. In the spirit of UNESCO’s message of world culture, it also embraces Arabic melody, Russian song, the passion of Spanish zarzuela and an extraordinary 33-voice creation from Thailand.
