Over one hundred VIP guests gathered on Wednesday, March 20, at Irma’s at the W South Beach in honor of “Opera Italiana is in the Air’s” kick-off party. Guests enjoyed light bites from Irma’s and Santa Margherita wine while enjoying the sounds of Opera.
In attendance were Maestro Alvise Casellati, President & Music Director of “Opera Italiana is in the Air”, Alejandro Servalli, Director of International Affairs, City of Miami and Cristiano Musillo, Consul General of Italy in Miami.
On Saturday, April 13, Maestro Alvise Casellati, President and Music Director of “Opera Italiana is in the Air,” a new concept for free, outdoor concerts, previously hosted in Central park, New York, is pleased to announce its first ever performance in Miami, Florida at Regatta Park (2699 SW 27th Ave) at 8:00 PM. He will be presenting some of the greatest names in Italian Opera: Davinia Rodriguez (soprano) and Vincenzo Costanzo (tenor), who will sing for the first time in Miami and together. The orchestra will be composed of Miami’s top professionals in the first roles, leading local students and new graduates from the city’s major conservatories.
Its mission is to engage the diverse community of Miami, namely the younger generation, and encourage everyone to appreciate Italian Opera firsthand in a casual, family-friendly outdoor environment. Last year was its second presentation in New York’s Central Park, with thousands of people attending. This April, Maestro Casellati will conduct the orchestra composed of members of the top professional orchestras in Miami, and its repertoire will focus on arias and duets from Verdi’s “Traviata” and Puccini’s “Tosca.”
