what else could I do but sing for you at this time? Easter is coming and I have accepted the invitation by the local government of my region, Liguria, to send up the most sublime of prayers, the music left to us by our great Verdi, Rossini, Puccini and the many other composers who approached the sacred through music.
On Sunday April 12th at 12,30 I will be singing in this special concert live from the Cathedral in Genoa:
“Resurrezione. Voci dalla Cattedrale di Genova”.
We have involved other born or adopted Ligurian artists like Matteo Lippi, Iván Ayón Rivas, Serena Gamberoni, Elena Belfiore and pianist Maria Letizia Poltini.
With the permission of cardinal Archbishop Angelo Bagnasco and the Chapter of Canon we will be holding this concert behind closed doors in the Cathedral of Saint Laurence in full respect of the regulations concerning social distancing. The music will be interspersed with Gospel readings and will reach you thanks to a diocese recording and live broadcasting by Liguria’s tv channels, the Region of Liguria’s social media channels and streaming by Teatro Carlo Felice.
I am moved, none of my recent theatre engagements can equal the profound significance of this performance.
Ph. Victor Santiago
