Berlin Opera Night
Donald Runnicles

The Gala presented by the Deutsche Oper Berlin in 2011 in support of Aids-related charities brought together the cream of Europe’s opera singers, in a programme of well-lover operatic excerpts, from Rossini, through Verdi to Wagner. Conducting was the Deutsche Oper’s General Music Director, the charismatic Scot, Donald Runnicles. Heading the star-studded line-up were established artists of the calibre of Adrianne Pieczonka, Vivica Genaux and Simone Kermes, while the younger generation was represented by tenors Francesco Demuro, Antonio Poli and Teodor Illincai, as well as the exciting soprano Kristin Lewis and mezzo-soprano Anna Smirnova. The result was truly an evening to remember. Francesco Demuro, Alex Esposito, Vivica Genaux, Teodor Ilincai, Dalibor Jenis, Simone Kermes, Kristin Lewis, Adrianne Pieczonka, Antonio Pol, Anna Smirnova


Recorded live at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, 5 November 2011. Directed by Thilo Krause, produced by Dorothea Diekmann.
