This year, Operafashion celebrates Christmas with a gift donated by the Italian soprano Eleonora Buratto: the backstage photos and the video “Fermarono i cieli”, an Italian Christmas song with lyrics and music of St. Alphonsus Maria de ‘Liguori. The soprano is accompanied by four trombonists of Mascoulisse Quartet.
In homage to her town Mantova – Italian Capital of Culture 2016 – and to the association Debra South Tirol-Alto Adige, Eleonora decided to record the song at Teatro Bibiena and to film the video at Palazzo Te, a splendid example of Italian Renaissance architecture: the magical setting of the “Sala dei Giganti” and “Loggia di David” exalts the wonderful voice of the artist.
For this special occasion, the soprano wearing a magnificent blue silk cape created by famous Tirelli Costumes. Make up and hair stylist Mariano Sabatelli.
Merry Christmas from Operafashion!
