Guest Speaker: Opera Star Roberto Frontali - March 5, 2021

Roberto Frontali and Susanna Branchini in Verdi's Macbeth
We're thrilled to have another outstanding speaker -- this time from the world of opera and belcanto. Roberto Frontali, who is considered one of the greatest baritone voices of our time, has performed in the most important theatres of the world, including the Royal Opera House, the Met, Teatro alla Scala, Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, La Fenice, and the Wiener Staatsoper, among many others. He performed the role of Montfort in French for "Les vêpres siciliennes" at Rome's Teatro dell'Opera in 2019. One of his current projects is a live stream of "La Traviata" in February 2021.

He will tell us about important moments and fascinating anecdotes along his career path, as well as the impact COVID-19 has had on his work and that of his colleagues. The opera world, like many other cultural fields, attempted to provide comfort and beauty for everyone during the initial lockdown in 2020 and has sought to be resilient in the months that have followed. 

In Italian and English.

When: Friday, March 5, 2021
Time: 6 to 7 p.m. Rome time 
Meeting Place: wherever you are -- remote interactive talk on Zoom.
Cost: free
RSVP: ATTN Marielle.
