The programme features works by Rossini, Donizetti, Verdi, Bizet, and many more.
Roberto says, “I am absolutely thrilled to join the musicians of Sinfonía por el Perú and their founder, Juan Diego Flórez, in this exciting tour. An oppourtunity such as this one is a source of enormous inspiration, intensive learning and unforgettable memories for all the young members of the orchestra. Many of them have never visited Europe before, and all of them will be moved the extraordinary atmosphere and beauty of these festivals and cities. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!”
