On August 11, 2021, PARMA Live Stage will present a concert celebrating the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra’s season finale with Diana Damrau.

The audio-visual production will feature Damrau alongside tenor José Cura conducting. Produced by PARMA Recordings at Valletta’s iconic Fort St. Elmo, the online production will also star Nicolas Testé and young Maltese artists Marvic Monreal and Charles Buttigieg.

The program will include selections from operas and musical theatre, with Italian, French, and Russian repertoire amongst others. Among the composers included in the program are Verdi, Offenbach, Bellini, Rossini, Bizet, Gerswhin, and Mascagni.

Audiences can watch the concert here at 9:15 Malta time.

Damrau next tours Europe with a Strauss program in Paris, Breman, Hamburg, Bucharest, and Luxembourg. She is set to return to the Wiener Staatsoper, Opernhaus Zurich, and Bayerische Staatsoper this season.
