In his only European appearance this summer, Andrea Bocelli will take the stage at the ancient Greek Theatre of Syracuse on 1 July.
The celebrated tenor will be accompanied by the soprano Desirée Rancatore as well as the Symphony Orchestra and Chorus of the Teatro Massimo Bellini in Catania.
Bocelli will sing a range of selections from his repertoire, from classical pieces to contemporary hits, all for charity. The benefit concert is being performed to support the organization Fiamme di Solidarietà (Flames of Solidarity). The group’s mission is to raise awareness of issues concerning the poorest and most marginalized in our society.
Bocelli has sold over 70 million album worldwide and is currently on an international tour that will culminate with a concert in Central Park this September. Those fortunate enough to hear his performance on Friday will not only support a great cause, but also be the only European audience lucky enough to see the most famous tenor in the world this summer.
