A wonderful evening of opera arias is on the program in July, with singers Thomas Hampson and Elena Mosuc, both of whom have appeared in the world's greatest opera houses and proved their caliber in numerous roles that have established them at the pinnacle of operatic art.
The Romanian-born soprano Elena Mosuc was winning international competitions when still a student. Since the start of her career, she has been linked with the Zurich Opera House, where she first appeared as the Queen of the Night, a role she has gone on to sing more than 250 time. In 2019 she was named best soprano at the prestigious "Stella della Lirica" International Opera Awards.
The American baritone Thomas Hampson is likewise the recipient of numerous prizes and distinctions. He has sung at least 80 operatic roles over the course of his career and is without a doubt one of the most highly esteemed musicians of the current age. When not performing, he dedicates himself to intercultural dialogue through his Hampsong foundation, established in 2003.
The two soloists will be accompanied by the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra under the Romanian conductor Nicolae Moldoveanu in a performance of the most beautiful melodies of the giants of opera.
