Wednesday, the 5th of April we'll be performing with Kolding Mandskor (Men's Choir) at a charity concert for the Sct. Georgs Gilderne. It is an understatement to say we're looking forward to it! They sing so wonderfully.
We can reveal that we will perform a very special piece together - actually, they're all special - but this one has an extra story to it.
It is the aria "Casta Diva" from Bellinis opera "Norma". Now, the three of us feel very close to Bellini because he was a composer from the early 19th century who came from Catania in Sicily. And that's exactly where we've lived!
In Catania everybody is crazy about Bellini. People hum his opera melodies like others hum pop songs - even though he moved away when he was young and hardly ever returned. But he still belongs to Catania; There is an opera house named after him, with one of the world's best acoustics, parks, streets, houses - and recipes.
