Opera's "Once in a Century Soprano," the Great Alessandra Marc, to Perform at Carnegie Hall Gala
WASHINGTON, DC, March 9, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Alessandra Marc, considered one of the greatest sopranos of our lifetime, returns to live performance at CARNEGIE HALL, April 4, 2017 7:30pm Zankel Hall, performing her signature aria from Turandot: the opera that electrified audiences of her most recent appearances at Lincoln Center's Metropolitan Opera.
Celebrating the life and career of Giuseppe Giacomini, artists and opera lovers will gather to honor Italy's greatest dramatic tenor of his generation. "Giuseppe won my admiration and friendship when we performed Don Carlo together in Bordeaux many years ago," says Marc, whose talent and grace have fueled her own great success, both in opera and in life.
After appearing on NBC's Today Show, Marc became known the world over as THE AMERICAN DIVA, gracing the cover of Opera Now as "Opera's High Performance Soprano." The New Yorker declared, "Hers is perhaps the richest, fullest, most beautiful big soprano voice."
France's Le Figaro got it right early in Alessandra Marc's career, describing her Paris recital debut in 1992 with the headline "Une Etoile est Nee!" Indeed, a star had been born and has captured the attention of opera lovers ever since!
Today, Alessandra Marc is hailed as the finest Princess Turandot of her generation, having performed the role on many of the acclaimed stages which have seen Giacomini perform, including New York's Metropolitan Opera, La Scala in Milan, the Paris Opera, London's Covent Garden, and Liceu in Barcelona.
Alessandra Marc is the outstanding dramatic soprano of our day. Andrew Porter, of The New Yorker, called her, "an instrument of unsurpassed beauty and impact…. Perhaps the richest, fullest, most beautiful big soprano voice around." "You sing like birds fly," declared actor Tom Hanks, echoing the impressions of Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo: "Such a voice," they have said, "comes only once in a century and lifetime!" Even the New York Times has reported: "Alessandra Marc displayed burnished tone and enormous volume, especially in climactic phrases that soar above the orchestra and chorus."
Alessandra Marc has given command performances at the White House, as well as for Pope John Paul in Italy, for HRH Prince Rainier of Monaco, and many other heads of state and Royal families. Ms. Marc's legendary gifts reach far beyond the confines of the music business alone, bringing together people in all walks of life at a time when the world has a desperate need for harmony!
