The power, depth and agility of the voice of Russian bass-baritone Ildar Abdrazakov has dazzled audiences from New York’s Metropolitan Opera and Saint Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre to the Opéra Bastille in Paris. Who better than one who has sung leading roles in Atilla, Macbeth, Oberto and Luisa Miller to delight music lovers with his performance of Verdi’s greatest arias? Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts this concert, which will also feature some of the Italian composer’s most thrilling orchestral pages.
Mario F. Paquet invites the public to discover the works on the program during a free 30-minute bilingual chat with the concert players.
