Discover 60, Roberto Alagna's new album!

To celebrate his 60th birthday and 40 years of an exceptionally rich and varied career, the world's greatest tenor records a brand new programme in his own image: Italian, French or Russian opera, chanson, operetta or crossover... the inimitable singer explores every genre and delivers here a concentrate of his art, with passion, audacity and generosity.

 


60! France’s most famous tenor celebrates not only his sixtieth birthday, but also forty years of an exceptionally rich and varied, and remarkably generous career.

For a man who started out singing in Parisian cabarets, went on to perform on the world’s greatest stages, and already has an impressive number of recordings to his name, what could be more natural than to mark the occasion with a new recording, reflecting the richness and diversity that have shaped his unique career?

A career spent off the beaten track, constantly regenerated, and showing an insatiable curiosity, a temperament, and an extraordinary vocal timbre. Opera, new works, rediscoveries, religious music, sacred songs, operetta, variety, musicals, traditional Sicilian and international songs… exploring every genre, Roberto Alagna captivates audiences everywhere.

Here, accompanied by the Morphing Chamber Orchestra under Giorgio Croci, he presents a programme that is very much in his own image: showing a contagious passion, an insatiable appetite for the exploration of different repertoires and styles, ranging from opera – French (Gounod, Massenet, Thomas, Adam), Italian and Neapolitan (Verdi, Leoncavallo, Pergolesi), German (Wagner, Flotow), Polish (Moniuszko) and Russian (Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov) – to Italian and French songs, English and South American crossover music… and, as is his wont, the inimitable tenor also has some surprises up his sleeve!

Bravissimo, Roberto Alagna 60!
