New Year's Day Concert 2014
The Maggio Musicale Fiorentino is back at Il Ciocco for the traditional New Year's Concert: an ensemble of chamber musicians of the Maggio, directed by Maestro Domenico Pierini, accompanied the Lucchese soprano Silvana Froli along Verdi’s entire artistic career.
A journey from the popular trilogy of the Traviata, Trovatore and Rigoletto to the more historical works such as Othello, Aida and Ernani across music immages and words, directed by one of the most talented Italian directors, Andrea Cigni and accompanied by the voice of the actor, Dario Cantarelli.
The concert, now in its 14th edition, was organized by the Misericordia of Castelvecchio Pascoli in collaboration with Renaissance Tuscany. During the evening more than 7000 Euro were raised in favor of Amatafrica, a non-profit organization that runs the Muhura mission in Rwanda.
