Tenor Lawrence Brownlee joins Opera Rara’s Artistic Director, conductor and pianist Carlo Rizzi, in an exclusive London concert appearance featuring songs by Gaetano Donizetti and his contemporaries. As part of a year-long celebration of the 225th anniversary of Donizetti’s birth, Brownlee and Rizzi will explore repertoire that has been recently restored and rarely, if ever, performed in modern times. Promoted by Opera Rara, this recital launches the multi-year Donizetti Song Project, which will see the recording and performance of all the composer’s nearly 200 solo songs.

Promoted by Opera Rara.

The Donizetti Song Project is supported by the Opera Rara Donizetti Syndicate.
Today’s performance is supported by Colwinston Charitable Trust, Cockayne Grants for the Arts and London Community Foundation.
