  • Maria Katzarava soprano
  • Stefano La Colla tenor
  • Simon Lepper piano

Mexican soprano Maria Katzarava, known for her ‘young, fresh voice and wide tessitura’(ABC), joins with Stefano La Colla, a critically renowned tenor in his home country of Italy, for the sole duo recital of the season. The two will perform a programme of French and Italian opera classics with a second half dedicated in its entirety to Giacomo Puccini.

‘Her [Maria Katzarava’s] dynamics were generous and well executed and her phrasing was spontaneous and expressive… her tone stood out both in the quartet and the septet, always measuring her strength and applying beautiful colours to her voice.’ ABC

‘From the moment he walked onstage until the moment he was shot by the supers, La Colla lived, breathed and embodied Mario Cavaradossi. Brusque and focused… he sang with passion and enthusiasm’ Bachtrack
