Elina Garanča mezzo-soprano
Karel Mark Chichon conductor
London Symphony Orchestra

Don’t miss this chance to hear Elina Garanča bring atmosphere and narrative to a handpicked selection of arias from the French and Italian repertoire.
One of the most universally lauded singers of our time is joined by the London Symphony Orchestra and her conductor husband [as she performs extracts from Tchaikovsky, Bizet and others].
Mezzo Garanča has a truly extraordinary voice, described in glowing terms by handfuls of seasoned critics. ‘Creamy’, ‘silky’ and ‘lustrous’ it might be, but her voice has a rounded maturity and confidence as well as a chameleonic ability to adapt in character and purpose.
