Italian, French, and Russian arias with the Buenos Aires Philharmonic Orchestra
When soprano Aida Garifullina takes the stage, “you understand why she has the world at her feet” (The Times). Experience the magic of this exciting young talent in her Argentinian debut at the Teatro Colón, a showcase for her remarkable range and exquisite timbre!
Throughout the evening—while Carlos Vieu and the Buenos Aires Philharmonic round out the program with favorites by Bizet, Tchaikovsky, and Verdi—Garifullina demonstrates her register- and genre-spanning skill. Her talent and poise astound in Gounod’s acrobatic “Je veux vivre dans le rêve” and Delibes’s Spanish-inflected “Les filles de Cadix,” in the celebrated arias of both Mimì and Musetta from La Bohème, and in the heartrending melancholy of La Traviata’s “Addio, del passato” and Massenet’s Élégie.
