Holding the baton for the theatre's orchestra and chorus will be Maestro Roberto Abbado. Stage direction will be in the hands of Marco Bellocchio.
Just a few days later, on May 8th, Gregory Kunde will offer a recital at Opera Naples, in Naples, Florida, accompanied on the piano by Ramón Tebar. The concert will feature a selection of the great opera arias recorded for his new CD, which will be released soon.
