“The Three Tenors” in concert showcases the greatest Italian masterpieces
The Three Tenors concert is truly a journey through the grandeur of opera music. And, just like Goethe from 1786 to 1787, it is also a journey through Italy—Venice, Milan, Parma, Rome—from the 18th century to the 20th century. The Three Tenors concert in Rome brings Italy together once again.
La Diavolessa by Baldassare Galuppi (1755); the aria Nessun Dorma from Turandot by Giacomo Puccini; or the aria La donna è mobile, the last act of Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto (1851), one of the most popular opera arias. And these are just a few examples…
Indeed, we must not forget Neapolitan song, a popular genre that comes from the area of Naples. A couple of famous examples of this genre are the songs Funiculì funiculà and the iconic O sole mio. And we mustn’t forget one of the greatest successes of contemporary Italian music, Con te partirò, performed by Andrea Bocelli.
