Daniel Barenboim will conduct the La Scala di Milano opera orchestra, soloists and choir in a performance of Verdi's great Requiem at Hayarkon Park in Tel Aviv at 9 p.m. on July 16. The event is part of Tel Aviv's centennial birthday bash and should be a zinger. The stage will be configured like that of La Scala and capped by an acoustic shell. The soloists are soprano Adriana Damato, mezzo-soprano Sonia Ganassi, tenor Guiseppe Fillianoti - all Italian - and German bass Rene Papé. VIPs get to sit in a special area, nibble on pre- and post-concert edibles and will pay NIS 1,500 for the pleasure. Other tickets are NIS 520 and NIS 660. Sitting on the grass is free. You won't see a thing, but you'll hear gloriously.
