Lovers of opera and chamber music will enjoy the concert by Australian mezzo-soprano, Allegra Giagu, who is making a one-off appearance on the coast next week. Organised by Project Music Management, the concert will take place at the Avanto restaurant in La Cala de Mijas on Thursday, 19 April.
Allegra Giagu made her Sydney Opera House début at the age of eleven and came into the media spotlight a few years later as a soloist during The Edinburgh Military Tattoo, performing Salute to Australia leading to a collaboration with Dame Judi Dench on Classic FM. Allegra studied music at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. She went on to perform on stages all over the world, accompanying the Sydney Symphonic Orchestra and the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
For her concert on the Costa del Sol, Allegra will be accompanied by celebrated UK-based pianist, Nicole Panizza, who received her Doctor of Music degree after a performance-led study of American art song settings of the poet Emily Dickinson.
The show in La Cala de Mijas will include poetry recitals and the music of Ravel, Vivaldi, Schubert and Bizet.
Tickets for the show, which begins at 8.30pm, cost 25 euros and include welcome drinks and canapés. Reservations can be made on firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 693 751 857.
