Verdi (1813-1901) Celebration Concert – Wakkerstroom Music Festival 2013

The Wakkerstroom Music Festival was held on the weekend of 21-23 March 2013. Sempre Opera performed with “Verdi Bicentennial Concert”. Below an excerpt from a review by Paul Boekooi:

“Daar was vele ander hoogtepunte: Sempre Opera se gedenkkonsert vir Verdi (1813-1901) waarin vokale afronding en dramatiese krag in tien uittreksels tot lewe geroep is. Die toegif, “Va pensiero” uit Nabucco, was aangrypend en is ook tydens die galakonsert Saterdagaand gehoor”. (Paul Boekooi, Beeld 27 Maart 2013)

There were many other highlights: Sempre Opera performed ten excerpts in the Verdi (1813-1901) celebration concert where vocal finishing and dramatic power was brought to life. The encore, “Va Pensiero”, from Nabucco was moving and was also heard at the Saturday evening’s gala concert. (Paul Boekooi, Beeld 27 March 2013)
