[New Year’s concert]
Hanne Roos soprano
Alberto Martinez Baritone
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Joseph Haydn, Pietro Mascagni, Giacomo Puccini, Johann Strauss II, Johann Strauss Jr., Johann Strauss, Franz Lehar
Casco Phil will see in the new year with a generous helping of opera: the top arias and harmonious duets from Mozart’s masterpieces Così fan tutte, Le nozze di Figaro and Die Zauberflöte; Rossini’s hilarious / belly laughs Italian buffa, the lyrical belcanto of Donizetti; the youthful energy of the Fledermaus overture and the coquettish kisses of Franz Lehar’s Giuditta. Together with soloists Hanne Roos and Alberto Martinez, we take you on a journey through repertoire that will move you deeply then have you crying tears of laughter. And while the concert is centred on opera, of course you couldn’t have a January concert without Johann Strauss’ waltzes, polkas and the Radetzky March. A delightful New Year’s letter set to music to start 2023 with a smile.
