Orchestral Concert

7.30 pm, Gstaad Festival Tent

A veritable opera orgy on the horizon! A perfect evening for opera lovers as well as for those who have no idea where to begin with respect to the giant lyric repertoire: from Rossini to Puccini, from Verdi to Massenet, some of the most beautiful works from the 19th century carried by the voices of artists at the summit of their careers and accompanied by the eminent London Symphony Orchestra (back after a year’s absence) under the direction of one of the most magical conductors active in orchestra pits around the world. Damrau, Calleja, Hampson, Pappano… New York, Vienna and La Scala united together in the Festival Tent in Gstaad!
