The Staatsoper unter der Linden has announced the complete list of soloists that will take part in the series of concerts “Viva Verdi” on Oct. 4, 9 & 11, 2020. The string of concert performances comes as a replacement for the fully staged opera “Macbeth” that had to be canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 concerns.

The concert performance will star Liudmyla Monastyrska, Violeta Urmana, Marcelo Álvarez, Alexey Markov, Adrian Sâmpetrean, Sergey Skorokhodov, Vladislav Sulimsky, Alexander Tsymbalyuk, and Kwangchul Youn.

The program will include arias and duets from the famed Verdi’s operatic masterworks – “Il Trovatore,” “Macbeth,” “Don Carlo,” and “Simon Boccanegra.”

Simone Young will conduct the Staatskapelle Berlin.
