The superstars of opera sing for you!

Rolando Villazón, Piotr Beczala and Pretty Yende: "Great Voices" again offers absolute stars of the opera at the Vienna Konzerthaus. The cycle "Great Voices" has established itself over the last four years as a highlight of the Viennese musical life celebrated by audiences and critics.

Rolando Villazón will indulge into his Mozart passion while Piotr Beczala will present melodies by Lehár paying homage to his idol Richard Tauber and the very young Pretty Yende is one of today's most sought-after rising stars. A parade of singers you should not miss!

The Stars

Pretty Yende

She came, sang and conquered! That seems to be the motto of the young South African soprano Pretty Yende. She made her debut at the New York Met as Adèle in Rossini's "Le comte Ory", she excelled in February 2013 in the Theater an der Wien in the same role as stand-in for Cecilia Bartoli and was given a tumultuous reception from the audience and critics.

It is a great pleasure to listen to the bell bright and glorious coloratura voice and to experience the delightful play of the very pretty singer. "Great Voices" has succeeded to bring this sought-after new star to Vienna performing works by Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti, Gounod and Massenet.

Rolando Villazón

Rolando Villazón is one of the most popular opera singers in Vienna. The audience loves Rolando especially in his main roles such as Rodolfo, Werther, Roméo, Hoffmann, Nemorino or Des Grieux. During his fourth evening in the series "Great Voices" the tenor again shows a new facet of his tremendous ability and his versatility.

This time the program includes works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Accompanied by the splendid kammerorchesterbasel playing without a conductor, Villazón will play Alessandro and Don Ottavio in the Vienna Konzerthaus enchanting the Viennese audiuence with Mozart's beautiful and rarely heard concert arias.

Piotr Beczala

"On Sundays we used to listen to Richard Tauber," says Piotr Beczala remebering that already as a child he was fascinated by the voice of the singer. Tauber, one of the greatest tenors of the last century, was born in Linz in 1891. He triumphed not only in opera but rose to stardom thanks to the tailor-made music by Franz Lehár and through numerous movies.

In the Vienna Konzerthaus Beczala remembers his model Tauber and dedicates a tribute to him, accompanied by the Symphony Orchestra of the Vienna Volksoper under Lukasz Borowicz. With the incomparable fusion of his voice Beczala will show what he has learned from his example, saying: "Sing with all your heart and soul!»
