İş Sanat Culture Center
The musical duel of the two shining stars of the international opera scene is at İş Sanat. Under the direction of concertmaster Andrés Gabetta, Cappella Gabetta will stage the probably most famous rivalry of the baroque era starring Faustina Bordoni and Francesca Cuzzoni. Two singers will represent the two quarrelling characters - Simone Kermes alias Francesca Cuzzoni and Vivica Genaux alias Faustina Bordoni. German coloratura soprano Simone Kermes has performed at many important theatres and concert halls and brilliant mezzo-soprano Vivica Genaux has charmed audiences and critics alike with her charisma and astounding vocal technique. This special night offers the audience a wonderful experience filled with baroque repertoire.
