A Major Revival

GIUSEPPE PENNISI reports on
bel canto in Europe

 

A major revival of bel canto is being featured this early summer in Western Europe. There are two salient events: a major tour of tenor Juan Diego Flórez in the main European capitals, and the Salzburg Whitsun Festival (directed by Cecilia Bartoli). I was able to catch Flórez on 24 May 2012 during his stop in Rome. (The tour started in London and will end in Salzburg during the Summer Festival.)
