With an irresistible programme, the Bel Canto Opera Gala celebrates those composers of “beautiful song” whose classics have stood the test of time. Far removed from intellectual musing, this music resonates with and radiates the famed “dolce vita”. Under the baton of Heiko Mathias Förster, the Prague Royal Philharmonic together with top-class soloists take us through this musical heyday and golden age of bel canto with a selection of the most beautiful arias, duets, scenes and overtures.
