Highlights: An Evening for Great Voices at Théâtre des Champs-Élysées

From country to country, a common thread ties the opera world: A great appreciation for classical technique. Join us for an evening and immerse yourself into the scores of the most beloved opera arias and ensembles performed by some of today’s best talent.

 

The first evening is a mixture of drama, tragedy, and happy endings in French, German, and Italian. The concert draws on the humour of Neapolitan comedy with the betrayal, social tension, love, intrigue, desire, and sentimentality of French opera. Each aria and duet in this evening's programme serves only to enhance the other, due to the range of artistic styles within.
The three artists on stage, whose early careers have been unanimously hailed by the critics, must share a common quality to meet this concert’s demands: panache! Needless to say, Golda Schultz (soprano) and the two Pati brothers, Amitai and Pene (both tenors), have it in spades.

 

The second evening plunges us into the splendour of Italian tragedies of the Baroque period. Plots, quarrels, the spells of a sorceress, and the full range of human emotions can all be found in the arias listed for this evening. Thibaut Noally's Les Accents, an ensemble specialising in the vocal and instrumental repertoires of the 17th and 18th centuries, treat these classical pieces with a wealth of colour, rhythm, and striking contrasts. This brilliant young vocal cast invites us to delight in these pages that are so full of life.
The evening will combine the vocalizations of a soprano and a mezzo-soprano with the divine voices of two countertenors.

Théâtre des Champs-Élysées


Hosting one of the most lavishing concert halls in all of Paris, Champs- Élysées is the true definition of architectural beauty with its historic foundation. Inaugurated on April 2nd, 1913, the structure is quite large comprising three auditoriums: Théâtre des Champs- Élysées, The Comédie des Champs- Élysées, Studio des Champs- Élysées, and a restaurant. The main theatre which has 1905 seats is Italian styled and originally constructed to host guests visiting the theatre to watch opera shows and concerts. This was the first theatre in Paris to be built completely from reinforced concrete instead of steel.

 

Over the years the famed theatre has hosted many recognized artists such as the beautiful cabaret dancer Josephine Baker, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, Stravinsky, Richard Strauss, and many other entertainers from our cherished olden day era. In 2005 the main room in the theatre was renovated in order to improve the acoustics, it is confirmed that during a show the sounds are very clear, almost as if you were up close to the stage. Théâtre des Champs- Élysées is one of the most frequently visited monuments in Paris, on an annual basis more than 300,000 people attend programs from contemporary dance and ballet recitals to orchestras, operas, and other concerts. Carrying a number of diverse performances of different genres, the theatre attracts audience members of all ages.
