On Saturday, May 27, 2017 at 8 pm, back to the Piermarini Hall, there will be the traditional Annual Concert with the Accademia Teatro alla Scala students: soloists and orchestra will be conducted this year by Marco Guidarini, already at the head of the artistic groups in 2009 and 2014.
The concert is an essential opportunity for the students: for many of them who receive the final diploma is the succesfull completion of a long course of study full of professional experiences.
The mezzos Mareike Jankowski and Chiara Tirotta, tenors Francesco Castoro, Azer Zada and Giovanni Sebastiano Sala and the bass Martin Summer are going to finish their teaching path.
With them, on the stage, the sopranos Céline Mellon, Sara Rossini, Francesca Manzo and Ewa Tracz, the mezzo Dorothea Spilger, the tenors Oreste Cosimo and Jérémie Schütz, the baritones Gustavo Castillo and Paolo Ingrasciotta, the bass-baritone Dongho Kim and the bass Rocco Cavalluzzi.
In addition to Italy, the students come from Austria, Korea, Poland, Venezuela, Germany, Switzerland and France.
Scholarships enable them to face the challenging journey alongside masters such as Luciana D’Intino, Renato Bruson, Luciana Serra, Eva Mei and Gregory Kunde: Italian students benefit from the Fondazione Milano per la Scala and by Mrs. Liliana Montarsolo in remembrance of Paolo Montarsolo, foreign students from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
The concert program allows to highlight technical and interpretive skills: in addition to the Simphony from Les vêpres siciliennes and the Entr’acte from Carmen Act III, there will be pages by Donizetti (Cheti, cheti, immantinente and Pronta io son from Don Pasquale), Bellini (Serba, serba i tuoi segreti from La straniera), Verdi (Oh, chi torna l’ardente pensiero!… from Oberto, conte di San Bonifacio, Francesco! Mio figlio! from I masnadieri, Come dal ciel precipita from Macbeth, Sento avvampar nell’anima from Simon Boccanegra), Gounod (Salut! Demeure chaste et pure from Faust), Offenbach (Ah, quelle est cette voix … from Les contes d’Hoffmann), Saint-Saëns (Mon coeur s’ouvre à ta voix from Samson et Dalila), Delibes (Dóme épais from Lakmé) and Massenet (Ah! Fuyez, douce image from Manon).
