“Klassik airleben at home” featuring Thomas Hampson & Kristine Opolais
The Gewandhausorchester will stream the best recordings from the 2018 and 2019 concerts of Leipzig’s largest classical event, the “Klassik airleben” on Saturday, June 27, at 20:00 via www.klassik-airleben.de. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the famous open-air concert at the picturesque Rosental was canceled this year.
The stream presents great Italian opera duets and arias featuring Thomas Hampson and star soprano Kristine Opolais. Additionally, pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet performs hits of American film music, all under the baton of Andris Nelsons. Paint Arkona will moderate this special event. The stream is available for 24 hours.
