Istanbul to stage world-famous shows

Istanbul to stage world-famous shows The Good Music in Town series, organized by IEG Live, will continue with the chilling story of Baroque genius Antonio Vivaldi, “Vivaldianno City of Mirrors,” staged on Nov. 5 at Istanbul’s Ülker Sports Arena and the musical theater show “Belcanto the Luciano Pavarotti Heritage” on Dec. 17 and 18 at the city’s Volkswagen Arena. 

A 3D concert show, “Vivaldianno City of Mirrors” is grounded in Baroque music and tells of Vivaldi’s hopes and losses. 

During the show, an orchestra which covers classical as well as art-rock instrumentation will occupy the stage between large-format projections both in front of and behind it. 

“Belcanto the Luciano Pavarotti Heritage” pays tribute to the particular Italian bel canto vocal style that through different ways and forms of music has crossed the centuries going beyond national borders up to the present day.

The show uses six different thematic areas to trace the key stages that marked the history of the Italian bel canto, including the origins of bel canto from the Renaissance to Baroque, the Opera Buffa in the Italian and European 18th century, Giuseppe Verdi, Giacomo Puccini, Neapolitan songs and bel canto in the world.
