Gregory Kunde receives the “Cavalierato di Verdi” medal in Parma


Last October, on Tuesday the 16th, the “Fuoco di Gioia” Gala took place at the Teatro Regio of Parma. During the evening's festivities the tenor Gregory Kunde received the “Cavalierato di Verdi” from the CLUB DEI 27 appassionati verdiani, which organised the benefit concert as part of the Festival Verdi 2018. Kunde is the first tenor to be honoured with this recognition since Josep Carreras received it in 2005.

The American artist performed at the much-applauded event, along with colleagues Anna Pirozzi, Sebastian Catana, Cristina Melis, Marta Torbidoni and Susanna Branchini. Together they gave life to this passionate celebration of Verdi, which included over three hours of music with some of the most beautiful scenes, arias, choruses and symphonies composed by the Maestro from Busseto.
