In the stately archaeological complex of the Baths in Caracalla in Rome, Andrea Bocelli delivers a remarkable performance that is truly one of a kind. Backed up by a full symphony orchestra, one of the greatest living tenors takes a journey through his impressive repertoire of famous arias. Having sung virtually every coveted tenor aria in the catalogue, Bocelli has a wide canvas, on which he will paint a unique and memorable musical landscape for all guests of Terme di Caracalla in the Italian capital.
Andrea Bocelli’s silken voice fits marvellously to a variety of beloved classics. The Italian tenor has lent his incomparable vocals to opera show-stoppers like ‘Nessun dorma’ by Giacomo Puccini or ‘Libiamo ne’ lieti calici’ and ‘La donna è mobile’ by Giuseppe Verdi. His dramatic flair and fine touch for nuance and intonation breathe new life into the famous opera excerpts. Bocelli is also a master of the Neapolitan song, as his renditions of hits like ‘O sole mio’ readily demonstrate. At the Baths of Caracalla in the heart of Rome, you can expect a joyful celebration of operatic tradition. In the capable hands of Andrea Bocelli and his orchestra, you would get nothing less than that.
Apart from a masterful classical tenor, however, Bocelli is also a celebrated crossover artist who feels equally at home in modern and popular genres. Ever since his stellar duet with Sarah Brightman, ‘Time To Say Goodbye / Con te partirò’, he has shown his knack for contemporary music. Tracks like ‘Bésame mucho’, ‘All By Myself’, or ‘The Prayer’ have made him a household name even outside the classical milieu. However, Andrea Bocelli’s concert at Terme di Caracalla in Rome represents a return to his operatic roots. It features a programme of favourite arias by a pantheon of beloved composers, united by the tenor’s inimitable voice and amplified by the venue’s august air. This is truly a concert for the ages!
