The American soprano Renée Fleming is one of the shining stars in the world of classical music - and at this year's festival you can experience her singing songs by Schubert and Richard Strauss. In other words, an experience in a class of its own is planned with one of the great opera voices of our time at the center, when she, together with Tivoli Copenhagen Phil and the German conductor Sebastian Lang-Lessing, fills the Tivoli Concert Hall with beautiful tones.
Three international opera soloists based in Copenhagen are on stage in a tribute to Puccini and his Italian composer colleagues, who in the years around 1900 put as realistic fates as possible on stage in the "Verismo Opera" form and style.
At the time, Giacomo Puccini was the big star of Italian opera. He is a master at zooming in on the emotional highs, where he spreads his highly addictive melodies with searing passion. The Italian word "vero" means "true" or "real" and this movement of Verismo Opera created some of Operas most inspiring titles, which we see performed around the world today, and are so proud to present in concert as part of our 2021 Opera Festival.
