Of course, an important part of the programme is Angela Gheorghiu's role as Adriana Lecouvreur. The opera of the same name by Francesco Cilea will kick off the concert with arias and duets, it is followed by Bizet's aria of Carmen “L'amour  est un oiseau rebelle” (“Love is a rebellious bird”). Our Italian opera gala is rounded off by the duet from “La Bohème” (“O soave fanciulla”) and other arias by Giacomo Puccini, Alfredo Catalani and Umberto Giordano.
