Verdi to be played in the park
Daniel Barenboim will conduct the La Scala di Milano opera orchestra at Hayarkon Park.
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 PapÃ©.
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.
