A look at the New Year’s Concerts 2017

Let’s celebrate the beginning of the year 2017 with a series of concerts in all theaters of the world!

Soprano Sonya Yoncheva joined tenor Piotr Beczala and husband-conductor Domingo Hindoyan with Deutsche Radio Philarmonie in a Gala Concert at Festspielhaus in Baden Baden. For this occasion Sonya chose two gowns based on the timeless black and white.

In Italy New Year’s Day has a peculiar tradition with a concert at Teatro La Fenice in Venice. This year, the Primadonna was soprano Rosa Feola. Rosa sang “Qui la voce sua soave…” from Bellini’s I Puritani wearing a pearl grey silk column dress embellished on the sides by a series of chiffon large ruffles and flowered white lace. For the second part of the concert, the soprano wore a dress with a column silhouette and fine shimmering stones throughout. Both dresses are special creations of the Italian fashion-designer Gianni Molaro.

The New Year’s concert of Teatro Massimo in Palermo respects the tradition that heralds the transition from the old to the new year, dipping it in the ideal climate of joyful celebration. The opera arias are played by Nadine Sierra. The American soprano was elegant in a turkish sea off-the-shoulder silk faille gown from Zac Posen.

The Polish soprano Aleksandra Kurzak, performed at the Centrum Spotkania Kultur in Lublinie alongside the vocalist of rock Krzysztof Cugowski for a concert celebrating the first day of 2017 in music. Aleksandra wore two sequined gowns. The first outfit was total black with a glitter V-neckline gown and a voile cape. The second, a glamorous column gown has a sweetheart shape and vibrant sequined detail creates an animal print throughout the dress.

Mezzosoprano Anita Rachvelishvili joined many Georgian singer in a Gala Concert at State Opera House of Georgia. She sang a piece from Verdi’s Don Carlo in a black tunic dress with horizontal stripes of sequins: very fifties!
