Tenore Assoluto

Arias and instrumental pieces from Georg Friedrich Händel, Antonio Vivaldi, Baldassare Galuppi, Gaetano Latilla, Jean-Philippe Rameau, Nicola Porpora, Domenico Sarro, Giuseppe Sammartini, Johann Adolph Hasse and Antonio Maria Mazzoni

Michael Spyres, one of today’s most sought-after tenors, joins the ensemble Il pomo d’oro for a dive into the Baroque period and a tribute to the figure of the tenore assoluto – the singers of enormous virtuosity, range and vocal power who laid the foundations for baritones and modern tenors, the stars of opera history. Renowned for his extraordinary interpretations of bel canto and French opera, Spyres sings for the first time in his career a programme exclusively dedicated to the Baroque, tailored to his enormous technical qualities.
