An impressive musical fireworks display at the Old Theatre of Vilnius. Like colourful confetti, arias one more beautiful than the next will be flying at you in the hall. They will be performed by the brightest up-and-coming opera talents, under the patronage of the sic itur ad astra (siaa) foundation. Its title takes Virgil’s quote, which reflects the foundation’s mission with perfect accuracy – to lead singers on their journey to becoming classical music stars.
At the Christopher Summer Festival you’ll hear young soloists who have already assembled significant creative capital at international competitions and opera theatres. As soon as they take the stage, they capture audiences’ hearts, allowing each piece they perform to shine in all its brilliance. This concert is no exception. Be ready for a shot of musical energy provided by the joy of recognising the most famous arias, well-groomed, rich-sounding voices and the charisma of these stage performers.
Programme features the most popular arias, duos and more.
