Our summer of great singers continues with the debut of Angela Gheorghiu. It was Verdi with which the Romanian soprano sprang to international attention more than two decades ago, and it is Verdi to which she returns in this concert, featuring arias from two of his most inventive operas, perhaps his best-loved overture, and a work for cello and orchestra based on themes from his Rigoletto, written and performed by our own Solo Cello, Mats Lidström.
