“A magical atmosphere. Already entering that space is like doing a concert in heaven”. Thus the conductor Alvise Casellati who last night in Piazza di Siena has Rome, with a concert of ‘Opera Italiana on the Air’ conducted the Orchestra of the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma together with the soprano Mariangela Sicilia and the tenor Matteo Rome. An event offered by Intesa San Paolo to inaugurate the horse show in Piazza di Siena which starts today. A combination of music and sport which, Casellati says at Adnkronos, “should happen more often because both music and sport require effort, discipline and daily work. Sport is the medicine of the body, music is of the soul and in both results are achieved only with great commitment “. The project started yesterday with the concert in Piazza di Siena, “where the greatest emotion – says Casellati – is to see passers-by who stop to listen, enchanted by the music”, is called “‘Rebuild Harmony’ because – explains the master Paduan – after Covid and with a war in progress, we have to start again from the arts without which there is only barbarism. And we must do it by bringing the engines to maximum power “. And Casellati for years with ‘Opera Italiana is in the Air’, which he founded in 2017 and directed with the aim of bringing the beauty of Italian opera within everyone’s reach, is moving to make our melodrama known even to those who have few opportunities to do so. One example is the concerts in New York’s ‘Central Park’ which he conducts every year on June 27th. But before that date, next June 4th, Casellati with ‘Opera Italiana is in the Air’ will be at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington. “It is the first time for us in the US capital and it will be an opportunity to unite Italy and America under the gaze of Abraham Lincoln, a symbol of freedom and liberation from slavery, on the occasion of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Memorial”, concludes the conductor.
