-Two engagements will take the Italian tenor back to the city of his birth: a recital of Lied and his first concert as a crooner with repertoire by the legendary Frank Sinatra.
In April the tenor Andrea Carè has been winning over audiences and critics alike as Mario Cavaradossi, the male lead in Puccini´s opera Tosca, taking the role in Detroit (Michigan Opera Theater, United States).
Now, in May, Carè will travel to his home city, Turin, for two engagements: on the 11th May he will appear at the Teatro Vittoria for a recital of Lied organized by the Associazione Concertante, in which he will be accompanied by Cristina Laganà on the piano in a program which includes two cycles: Schumann´s Dichterliebe, and Grieg´s Sechs Lieder.
A few days later, on the 18th May, the singer will take the stage at the Jazz Club in Turin, where an exciting evening awaits him: the concert Frank Sinatra tribute, to mark the 20th anniversary of the legendary American singer´s disappearance. Carè and the JCT Big Band will revisit famous songs by Sinatra, the crooner par excellence. Some of these songs marked the singer´s career and are related to a particular period of his life: “This will be the first time that I take on a concert of this type – with a big band – and will be my first performance at the Turin Jazz Club. This is a challenge for me and I am really looking forward to getting on that stage and really enjoying myself with this brilliant repertoire,” the tenor explains.
Later, in June, Andrea Carè is booked to perform in Sofia (Bulgaria) for a gala evening with two other tenors who, like him, are disciples of the legendary soprano Raina Kabaivanska, and will make a debut in Taipei, as Mario Caravadossi in Tosca.
