The world famous Italian tenor and singer-songwriter, Andrea Angel Bocelli, is to perform a one-off concert in his hometown in Tuscany. Witness the opera singer live in Tuscany with Citalia, the leading Italian specialist.
Bocelli was born with poor eyesight but after a football accident at the age of twelve, he was left completely blind. Nevertheless he has gone on to enjoy worldwide success, has sold over 80 million records worldwide and is one of the most sought after musicians holding sold out concerts across the globe. Spending the majority of the year travelling around the world performing to thousands of people, Bocelli likes to return to his roots and even contributed to the building of an outdoor amphitheatre in his home town of Lajatico, Tuscany, in 2006.
The outdoor amphitheatre, named the Teatro del Silenzio or Theatre of Silence, now opens its doors annually for Bocelli’s concert and remains silent for the rest of the year. The theatre sits amongst Tuscany's stunning rolling hills, offering a stunning backdrop for Bocelli’s intimate concert. This truly unique and rare experience will take place on Sunday, 20 July 2014 in the small commune of Lajatico located 50km southwest of Florence and 40km southeast of Pisa.
Accompanied by famous guest singers each year, Bocelli, who is the honorary president of the theatre, performs live at the concert to an audience of 10,000 people. Over the years, guests who have joined Bocelli on stage include opera singers Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras, Sarah Brightman and Katherine Jenkins. 2014’s line up is yet to be announced but they are sure to the be the perfect accompaniment to Bocelli’s incredible operatic performance.
