About the Concert

Short Summary

The gala evening "Farinelli & Friends" concludes Cecilia Bartoli's second guest performance at the Vienna State Opera. Alongside Bartoli, internationally sought-after artists will perform a baroque program with highlights ranging from Handel to Vivaldi. Bartoli comments: "The evening will be a kind of showcase: We are all good friends and are really looking forward to singing with and against each other in Vienna, cheered on by the enthusiastic audience - according to the motto "anything you can do, I can do higher" or virtuoso..."
