In a one-night only event, Jonas Kaufmann will astound audiences in the U.S. with a nationwide screening of 'An Evening With Puccini' on Tuesday, Feb. 23. As of late, a video from the performance has surfaced, with Kaufmann performing Cavaradossi's opening aria from Tosca.
Earlier this month, Classicalite released an exclusive behind-the-scenes look into Jonas Kaufmann's upcoming release, 'Nessum Dorma - The Puccini Album.' Now, in a heated quarrel with his former label, Kaufmann is the victim of a dueling 'Puccini' album adorning his namesake, entitled 'The Age of Puccini.'
Amira did not record "Nessun Dorma" for her album as a dub-over duet with the late Luciano Pavarotti. The duet was created by a technical producer of "The Complimentary Breakfast" show on JacarandaFM in South Africa. Syco, the label that recorded Amira's album, was not responsible for the dub-over duet. Classicalite regrets this error.
Amira Willighagen received a particularly exciting gift for her 10th birthday last week: a copy of her first album, titled simply 'Amira.' Her album includes the two Puccini arias she sang to win 'Holland's Got Talent' in December, "O Mio Babbino Caro" and "Nessun Dorma," as well as nine other songs including "Ave Maria."
Nine-year-old singer Amira won 'Holland's Got Talent' on Saturday evening with a moving performance of Puccini's "Nessun Dorma."
Alexander Kariotis and his band The Rock Opera Orchestra recently recorded the album 'Nessun Dorma--No One Sleeps,' due out in January 2014.
