Large-scale concert Viva-Opera will take place at Heydar Aliyev Center with works on June 11.
At the threshold of the event, the soloist of the Azerbaijan State Academic Opera and Ballet Theater Mahir Tagizada shared with AZERNEWS his thoughts and feelings on the upcoming event.
"Viva-Opera is the first major event to be held in the theater under the leadership of newly-appointed director, People's Artist Yusif Eyvazov. We are finishing our season with this gala concert. Incredibly diverse concert program awaits opera lovers. During the concert, I will sing the aria from Giacomo Puccini's opera Gianni Schicchi. The next colorful number in the concert was supposed to be a duet of Rodrigo and Philip from Giuseppe Verdi's opera Don Carlos with maestro Ferruccio Furlanetto, but unfortunately he fell ill and will not be able to participate in our concert. Preparations for the event are very exciting. Me and all soloists are looking forward to Viva-Opera," the opera singer said.
