A few years ago, I was gifted a ticket to see Andrea Bocelli in concert at the theater he helped create in Tuscany called Teatro del Silenzio. Full of gorgeous operatic and pop music, guest performers, dancing, fanfare, spectacle, and even a white tiger, it was a mesmerizing, unforgettable event. And it gave me an even stronger appreciation for the talent that Signore Bocelli so generously shares with the world.
Now all of us can commune together with Bocelli (while still social distancing) via an Easter Sunday livestream concert called “Music for Hope” from the Duomo (or Cathedral) of Milan. He considers it a way to “hug this wounded Earth’s pulsing heart.”
You can watch it on Bocelli’s YouTube channel on Sunday, April 12 | 1PM Eastern, 10AM Pacific (https://youtu.be/huTUOek4LgU)
In the meantime, I hope you’ll enjoy this tiny portion of the concert I attended in Italy.
