Saturday Opera – The Italian treasure trove

Saturday Opera – The Italian treasure trove

This season we return to start our Saturday Opera at 3.30 PM every saturday.


On this Saturday Opera concert Ida Kathrine and Espen have chosen to open up the Italian treasure trove to give you the most beautiful and sensitive songs the Italian repertoire can offer. They have chosen music not only from the famous composers as Bellini, Mascagni and Tosti who are included in this programme, but also from Cardillo, Gastaldon, De Curtis and Mercadante. You will in true Saturday Opera spirit also hear a duet from Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore.

Ida Katrine Hagen Johansen, soprano
