Josep Carreras still triumphs in Verona with his "Gala di San Silvestro" at the Teatro Filarmonico

The first post of 2022 is dedicated to Josep Carreras' Gala Concert at the Teatro Filarmonico in Verona on New Year's Eve .  The title of the event, Gala di San Silvestro con José Carreras , totally conveys the kind of privilege the city of Verona had, despite the incredibly hard times we are experiencing.  After a two-year struggle against the Corona pandemic and all its limitations, the chance to end 2021 by admiring once again such a unique artist like Josep Carreras on stage actually gave us real hope for the future. A gift beyond words for all those who could attend.  Cecilia Gasdia , Artistic Director of the Arena di Verona Opera Festival , had invited her friend and colleague to perform at the traditional Gala di San Silvestro when they met in Viterbo on the occasion of the Premio Fausto Ricci Opera Singing Competition, as she was part of the jury Josep Carreras presided.  As reported on the program, Carreras made his debut at the Teatro Filarmonico back in 1976
