ANDREA BOCELLI IN CONCERT
November 28, 2015 at the O2 Arena Prague
The famous Italian tenor returns to Prague O2 arena with his Christmas Romance concert on November 28th, 2015.Andrea Bocelli dazzled the packed O2 arena when he was last here in 2013 and demand for the performance was so high that tickets sold out long before he went on stage. For those fans who weren’t able to see Bocelli in person, a promise was made that the world famous singer would return to Prague again soon.
The charismatic classical and pop music singer, whose star rose rapidly during the 90s, and who has sold over 80 million albums worldwide, is an acclaimed ambassador of Italian music who, this April, received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Billboard Latin Music Awards in Miami.
Also this year, Bocelli has released yet another successful album of opera, Manon Lescaut, along with Plácido Domingo and Ana Maria Martinéz. The lyrics to the song Tomorrow in Milan (“La Forza del Sorriso”) are sung to the music of composer Andrea Morricone (son of Ennio Morricone) and the song has become the soundtrack for Expo 2015.
Bocelli’s concerts are famous for their diverse repertoire drawing from many genres, and for outstanding duets with such stars as Zucchero, Sarah Brightman, Tony Bennett, Christina Aguilera and Celine Dion. At the beginning of his career, Bocelli enjoyed the patronage of stars such as Luciano Pavarotti and Zucchero. But it was the song “Con Te Partiró”, that catapulted him to worldwide fame and which he later sang in an unforgettable duet with Sarah Brightman as “Time to Say Goodbye”.
Bocelli’s Christmas Romance will see the Maestro perform classical arias from the most famous Italian and international operas. He will also delight the crowd with songs from his album, Love in Portofino, and possibly one or two surprises, and of course, songs reflecting the Christmas spirit will be part of the Repertoire as well. The tenor will be accompanied by the Czech National Symphonic Orchestra along with its choir conducted by Maestro Marcello Rota and other special guests, who will be announced later.
The VIP Platinum package includes tickets to the best seats right in front of the stage and cocktails before the concert.
