Sondra Radvanovsky is a world-famous singer who specialises in the performance of Italian opera of the 19th century. During her career, she has performed at many significant venues, such as the Royal Opera House in London, La Scala, Wiener Staatsoper, Opéra National de Paris and the opera houses in San Francisco, Chicago and Los Angeles.
Radvanovsky has become recognizable thanks to the amazing timbre, deep vibrato and extraordinary expression. Musical talent, appropriate technique and voice conditions give her soprano voice a great versatility and flexibility, and she can superbly perform many demanding parts. The singer is loved by not only the audience, but also by music critics, as evidenced by the positive reviews published in The New York Times, The Times and The San Francisco Chronicle. Radvanovsky has for good reason gained the title of one of the best sopranos of her generation in the field of Verdi's music – the audience will have the opportunity to know her skills during a special concert at the National Forum of Music.
It is an all-Italian programme. Radvanovsky will present the most beautiful arias from operas by Giuseppe Verdi and Giacomo Puccini. It will be an opportunity to listen to fragments of such compositions as the famous Tosca, La rondine, Manon Lescaut, La forza del destino, I Vespri siciliani and Il trovatore. Radvanovsky and the NFM Wrocław Philharmonic will also present arias from lesser known operas by Umberto Giordano, Alfredo Catalani, Pietro Mascagni and Francesco Cilea. This evening will undoubtedly be a real musical feast for the ears.
