Benefit concert with Valentina Naforniţa
Matinée performance with Rotary & Rotaract Vienna International, in aid of a school-building project
A special music matinée for all opera fans, and all for a good cause. Soprano Valentina Naforniţa was born in Moldova. She is known for her interpretations of major roles not just at the Wiener Staatsoper, but also at the Opéra de Lausanne, the Teatro dell’ Opera in Rome, the Garnier and the Bastille in Paris, and at La Scala in Milan. Here she sings highlights from the repertoire she has performed internationally, along with a selection of operatic arias.
The talented young violinist Sophia Hahn, whose achievements include winning the Glazunov competition in Paris, also makes a brief appearance. Your host for the event is Thomas Dänemark, General Secretary of the Friends of the Wiener Staatsoper.
All proceeds from this concert, which has been organised by Rotary & Rotaract Vienna International, go towards a project to build a new school near Izmir for deprived and disadvantaged children.
