We are so excited to announce our next release: the debut song disc from Julien Van Mellaerts 📀🎉🥂

Julien honours his heritage with a selection of New Zealand, British, and French song, recorded with pianist James Baillieu:
"I wanted to share where I feel connected to and explore the idea of home and identity through song. Having grown up knowing I was from many places, I feel a strong connection to the protagonist in Vaughan Williams / R. L. Stevenson’s Songs of Travel. I am lucky to call so many beautiful places home, and ultimately, that’s how we settled on the title, Songs of Travel and Home.” — Julien Van Mellaerts

Our opera company is preparing our 17th world premiere Italian opera, with music of Italian Maestro Mauro Fabbri & other artists from 45 countries to honor Dante! Muti says: ′′ I am in love with Divine Comedy because it says that music is not understanding but kidnapping. And in fact people who go to the theater, to enjoy music, are sometimes terrified of the famous ′′ competent ". But I'm not competent either: when I take a score I'm a musician... I understand the shape, architecture, counterpoint , the dynamics of notes, objective elements, but what is behind the notes is, as Mozart said, infinity."-Riccardo Muti

Wow, I am absolutely left speechless after watching the genius musicians in this community play. I have always been fond of the passion that people have for the arts, but never actually educated myself until recently! Along with this beautiful theatre, there were a bunch of different outlets that I used to watch opera, one of them being the Giulio Gari opera salon concert series. Its free, and digestible for all ages. This foundation emphasizes that their opera repertoire is extremely diverse with backgrounds and even roles within the classical music industry, like soloists, chamber musicians, passionate outreach activists, tenors, baritones and many more! The newest live episode is on the talented Errin Brooks who has been through many different roles and experiences to achieve his excellence today. Watching his sensational voice and listening to his person journey was so powerful. I cannot wait for the next episode- this foundation really gets such genuine talent. https://www.facebook.com/GiulioGariFoundation/videos/?ref=page_internal
The Grammy news is so exciting! It is always exciting to see recognition on a big platform. I had just wanted to take a moment to share about an exciting event that will be happening on March 31 on the Giulio Gari Foundation page. This will be their second salon concert series event of the year, and the guest featured will be Steven LaBrie, who played Riolobo in Florencia en el Amazonas! I am really looking forward to hearing about his experience in the opera industry and hope to learn more from him. I hope to see you all there!
This is a fantastic page. Thank you for all that you share.I wanted to share information about the Giulio Gari Salon Series. In the upcoming showing in the series, Jessica Rose Cambio will be a featured guest of the premiere event on February 24th at 7pm EST on the Giulio Gari Foundation Facebook live! She has performed all over the world, including the prestigious role of Mimì in La Bohème! I think this is a great chance to feel good about Opera. I hope everyone can see and enjoy it.
