The School of Music at Cardiff University in collaboration with CIRO (Cardiff Interdisciplinary Research in Opera and Drama) and Welsh National Opera is celebrating the centenary of Caruso's death with an afternoon of talks and performance on the 23rd September, starting at 3.30pm.
'Caruso at 100: the Legacy of an Operatic Icon' will include discussions on Caruso's vocality and recording legacy (Dr Barbara Gentili, Cardiff University), the tenor's book collection (Prof Alexandra Wilson, Oxford Brookes) and the biopic 'The Great Caruso' featuring Mario Lanza in the role of Caruso (Dr Carlo Cenciarelli, Cardiff University). The tenor Adam Gilbert (WNO Associate Artist) will perform arias from Caruso's repertoire accompanied by Lauretta Bloomer.
