The unique and inspiring setting provided by the Cathedral of St. Maria Assunta in Orvieto is going to host also this year, in line with tradition, the Easter’s Concert.

The 2018 edition, on schedule on Thursday 22nd March at 5 pm, is entitled “Moses in Egypt” and will bring to the Cathedral the Choir conducted by Master Marco Faelli and the Orchestra of San Carlo Theatre of Naples conducted by Master Donato Renzetti with music by Gioacchino Rossini, which marks this year his 150th anniversary of his death. Rossini wrote for the St. Carlo Theatre nine new serious operas where he was able to experiment and innovate at every opportunity. 

The event falls within the context of the project “Tribute to Umbria”, the Festival devoted to the young musicians accompanied by internationally recognized names and promoting the enhancement of the historical and artistic spaces of the region.

The concert will be broadcast on Rai 1 in Eurovision.
