Concerto di Capodanno coi Tre Tenori
There is no more quintessentially Italian way to bid your farewell to the old year and to greet the new one than with the Three Tenors’ celebratory concert at the beautiful Caravita Church in the heart of Rome. Concerto di Capodanno coi Tre Tenori is an annual tradition that attracts connoisseurs of Italian music and culture from around the world, and either one of its two performances – on December 31 and January 1 – will make your New Year’s celebration positively unforgettable.
Should you decide to buy your tickets in the Exclusive or VIP categories, you will not only enjoy the best seats in the house, but you will also be one of the lucky concert-goers who will raise a glass of sparkling Italian wine with the Three Tenors in celebration of the New Year. Arias, Christmas songs and waltzes garnered with traditional spumante among the gilded walls of the stately Caravita Church – this is what makes Concerto di Capodanno coi Tre Tenori truly special.
The programme is a venerable selection of Italian and European classics. In the first part of the concert, you will enjoy excerpts from Cavalleria Rusticana by Pietro Mascagni, L’elisir d’amore by Gaetano Donizetti, Tosca and Turandot by Giacomo Puccini, and La Traviata and Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi, among other stellar numbers. The second part features beloved Christmas songs, like ‘Adeste fideles’, ‘White Christmas’ or ‘Jingle Bells’, as well as ‘Radetzky-Marsch’ and ‘An der schönen blauen Donau’ by Johann Strauss Father and Son respectively – two undeniable New Year’s classics.
Apart from the powerful and rich voices of the Three Tenors, Concerto di Capodanno coi Tre Tenori features a string ensemble and a grand piano that provide the accompaniment but also sometimes take the lead with confidence and holiday cheer. Ring in the New Year in true Italian fashion at Rome’s beautiful Caravita Church!
