An OPERA in CINEMA Special Presentation LIVE in Cinemas Worldwide April 29: Placido Domingo’s Triumphant Return to La Scala In The Title Role of Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra
NEW YORK, April 27 /PRNewswire/ — Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra, starring Placido Domingo, Ferruccio Furlanetto and Anja Harteros, conducted by Daniel Barenboim and directed by Federico Tiezzi, will be broadcast LIVE in cinemas across the US and Europe on Thursday April 29, directly from Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Italy.
In early March, world-renowned opera singer Placido Domingo underwent surgery to remove a malignant polyp in his colon; after only six weeks of recovery, the famed “Three Tenors” alum is back in the spotlight. At age 69, Placido is undertaking a new challenge – the baritone role of the Doge of Genoa, after singing tenor roles for the last five decades!
Fans of this celebrated artist will get the opportunity to see his work up close – on the big screen, in digital HD, and broadcast LIVE from La Scala. And at $25 a ticket, it’s more affordable than a flight to Milan!
Communities without a venue participating in the live broadcast may experience this must-see event in June 2010, when Simon Boccanegra will be presented in encore screenings across the country. Check www.operaincinema.com for complete schedules and information on participating cinemas.
