Massimo Giordano at Anantara Palace Hotel – 24 August, a night to remember!

Lovers of beautifully performed classical music are in for a special treat, as the wonderfully atmospheric “Villa Padierna” amphitheatre in the Anantara Palace Hotel becomes the venue for a superb night of live opera and classic Italian songs.
On Thursday 24 August, internationally renowned tenor Massimo Giordano will give a very special and intimate performance. The Italian opera singer will take the audience on a journey that includes some of the best-known and much loved arias and songs that he has performed during his 30-year-career. These include arias by Verdi, Puccini, Massenet, as well as well-known Italian and Neapolitan songs like “O sole mio” and “Funiculi Funicula.

Massimo makes his return to the coast after last year’s successful Encore Classical Musical Festival “Marbella is a fabulous location that has everything – climate, locations, and lifestyle – and it attracts high-level visitors from all over the world”, he explains.

“There is also a tremendous appetite for culture, as I discovered when I produced the Encore Classical Musical Festival, and we were honoured to be joined by Queen Sofia”.

Accompanying Giordano will be Nelson Calzi, the renowned pianist from “La Scala,” while talented young soprano Ester Kandinova will also make a guest appearance.

The music performed on the evening has been specially curated my Massimo to appeal to all – both the opera aficionado and the casual classical music lover. ”I have chosen classic Italian songs from the 50s and 60s that reflect the “Dolce Vita” era in Italy, as well as some of my favourite arias from the turn of the last century. There really will be something for everyone!” he says.

One thing is certain. This performance by one of the world’s leading tenors, under the stars in a beautiful setting, is sure to be a magical, musical night to remember!
