Orchestra programme

This year the protagonist of the concert, which will be broadcast live on Rai 3, will be the great Italian opera repertoire, absent for a decade in August. Under the baton of Maestro Andrea Oddone, the Bartolomeo Bruni Orchestra will perform some of the most famous opera symphonies and stage music: from Rossini's Guglielmo Tell to Bellini's Norma, from Ponchielli's Danza delle Ore to Verdi's Marcia trionfale and balli dell'Aida. The symphonic pages will be alternated with famous arias by Puccini ("Vissi d'arte" from "Tosca" and "Un bel dì vedremo" from "Madama Butterfly") and by Verdi ("D'amor sull'ali rosee" and "Tu vedrai che amore in terra" from "Il Trovatore"), interpreted by Marta Mari, a young but already well known Brescian soprano.

The enchantment will not end with live television, because other interesting musical pearls will be
offers to hiker-listeners in the "off-air". As every year the Bruni Orchestra, in its
as a symphonic complex of more than 60 elements, will face the difficult test with seriousness and
the enthusiasm that has always distinguished it, to offer to the public present and to what
listen to a joyful Ferragosto on TV in the name of great Italian music.
