Opera Italiana is in the Air to Present ‘Rebuild Harmony’

By Francisco Salazar

Italian conductor Alvise Casellati is set to bring his ‘Opera Italiana is In the Air’ to New York City.

The free concert, entitled, “Rebuild Harmony,” will take place at Central Park’s Naumburg Bandshell on June 27 and will be a celebration of female talent. The concert will feature sopranos, Dísella Làrusdóttir and Caitlin Gotimer as well as two of the New York Philharmonic’s Very Young Composers: 14-year-old singer Paloma Dineli Chesky and 15-year-old composer Jordan Millar.

Chesky’s original piece will open the concert, which will include music by Donizetti Rossini, Mozart, Verdi, Puccini, and Millar.

In a statement, Casellati said, “I hope that the joy and beauty of Italian opera and this incredible roster of female musicians will bring an injection of positive energy to the audience.”

Opera Italiana is presented with the invaluable support of the Consulate General of Italy in New York, the Italian Cultural Institute of New York, and Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Italia. This event is made possible through the generous contribution of Intesa Sanpaolo, GKSD Investment Holding, the Alexander Bodini Foundation, BEL Real Estate, ENI, Ferrero North America, Bracco Diagnostics, and the Foundation for Italian Art & Culture (FIAC).
