If you are a fan of exceptional music (especially opera) and you love the outdoors, Il Teatro Del Silenzio is a total dream come true place for you to visit. The Teatro del Silenzio (or Theatre of Silence) is an Italian open air amphitheatre which is located in Lajatico, Tuscany. There is one specific time of year when this Teatro really comes alive when the sounds of music, laughter and sometimes drama fill the air. This is when Andrea Bocelli performs in his home town!
Andrea Angel Bocelli was born on September 22, 1958 in Lajatico, Tuscany, Italy. As a child, he learned to play the piano, flute and saxophone. Visually impaired from birth, Bocelli became blind at the age of 12 following a football injury. His big break came when a demo tape landed in the hands of Luciano Pavarotti. His 1995 album Bocelli did really well in Europe and 1999’s Sogno became an international hit. Bocelli cemented his status as an international singing sensation. The hit record included a duet with Celine Dion. He has performed with great singers form all musical genres as Jennifer Lopez , Nelly Furtado and Placido Domingo He remains one of the world’s most popular tenors (and indeed singers in any category) today.
Teatro del Silenzio 2020
The Teatro del Silenzio (Theatre of Silence) is an open air amphitheatre located in a stunning position near tenor Andrea Bocelli’s home town of Lajatico in Tuscany. The venue was created at Bocelli’s suggestion when in 2006, he persuaded the local government to build an outdoor theatre in the peaceful, rolling hills of his home town. Now, in July of every year the venue typically hosts this performance, while for the rest of the year it lives up to its name and the stage area is transformed into a lake with a central platform where a series of sculptures have been exhibited. Year after year sees demand outstrip supply for this legendary event, so early booking is always recommended. This is an exclusive event, that every year comes alive in the wonderful scenery of Lajatico, birthplace of the Maestro, in the province of Pisa. This is a truly incredible experience and one we are pleased to be able to offer tickets for.
Once again, it will be music (and in particular the voice of the most beloved tenor in the world) which will create magic and bestow the spectators with a truly unique and individual experience beneath the Tuscan stars. The fifteenth edition of the Teatro del Silenzio concert-event will feature a breathtaking array of acoustic and visual art and will be an emotive performance dedicated to beauty in all of it’s aspects – its ethical significance and its redeeming power.
Friday July 24th and Sunday 26th July 2020 promise to be a wonderfully engaging journey into the power of the emotive voice of one of the most popular opera singers of our time! As in previous years, Bocelli, at Teatro del Silenzio, will be joined by several artists, who will perform throughout the concert and give life to a wonderful show, with sumptuous sets and a talented cast – truly a performance one will never forget. The magical atmosphere of this natural theatre, that was built for Bocelli and his yearly concert, will make the experience even more unforgettable. This will be a totally unique show that for the very first time is to be recorded in it’s entirety by the world’s television cameras. An amazing piece of operatic history awaits you……
