Proms: A Night at the Opera

Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

Italian classics by Rossini, Verdi and Puccini; an evening filled with passion, drama and virtuosity.

In Italy, everything is opera. Drama is life and arias are its soundtrack, sounding from the most distinguished theaters to the working-class neighborhoods. It is no different with us: Verdi, Rossini and Puccini can be heard here in the De Doelen, but also in De Kuip - although in the stadium you miss the golden voice of Eva-Maria Westbroek. She makes this concert an experience not to be missed: a sensation on stage, according to NRC. Italy may be jealous.
