This unique event gathers a casting of operatic superstars for which all opera houses in the world would fight to have on stage: Anna Netrebko, Jonas Kaufmann and Thomas Hampson. They are joined by mezzo-soprano Elena Zhidkova, acclaimed for her performance of the most beautiful roles (Carmen, Dorabella in Così fan tutte, Brangane in Tristan and Isolde) and the Russian bass Ildar Abdrazakov whose passionate voice, style and elegance remains unequalled among his peers.

This open air concert, a unique event in Europe, will take place in the exceptional site of 's Königsplatz, which boasts green spaces and monumental style giving a splendid frame to this summit of the operatic stars.

They will perform classical masterworks, including a range of arias, duets and trios extracted from operas by Verdi, Puccini and Tchaikovsky among others.

Too often concerts like this are slow ...

.... but not this one. It's a dazzler. Jonas kicks off with Celeste Aida [and does a Nessun dorma later], Tom is in better form than people says he's been recently, and while Anna Netrebko hardly looks the consumptive Mimi, she sings like a bird, and the smooching with Jonas der Wunder at the end of O soave fanciulla is hilarious. Could have done with more of Zhdikova, but Abdrazakov is in there pitching. Buy it, and one for a friend.
