On Tuesday 15th August at 9.30 p.m. the last of our latest cycle of Concerti del balcone [balcony Concerts] will take place on the balcony of Rossini’s birthplace, organized by the Pesaro Town Council’s Assessorato alla Bellezza and by the Rossini Opera Festival after an idea by Marco Mencoboni, in collaboration with Sistema Museo, Amat and the Fondazione Rossini.

The balcony of the composer’s birthplace will be the scene of vocal performances by some of the best pupils of the Accademia Rossiniana “Alberto Zedda”, a study seminar on modern belcanto interpretation which is held in Pesaro every year as part of the Rossini Opera Festival.

The singers in this performance will be the tenor Alasdair Kent and the bass-baritones Daniele Antonangeli and Aleksandr Utkin, accompanied at the piano by Rubén Sánchez-Vieco. Daniele Antonangeli will sing Mustafà’s aria “Già d’insolito ardore” from L’Italiana in Algeri; Aleksandr Utkin will offer the aria “Sois immobile, et vers la terre” from Guillaume Tell; and lastly Alasdair Kent will sing Ramiro’s aria “Sì, ritrovarla io guiro” from La Cenerentola.
