Franco Fagioli and Venice Baroque Orchestra

November 25 (Sun.), 2018


One of the world's most famous counter-tenors, the Argentinian Franco Fagioli (b. 1981), who has been taking Europe by storm, will visit Japan for the first time this fall, dropping in at Art Tower Mito as well. Having started his performance career in earnest in 2003, he moved the base of his activities to Europe, where he has sung under such noted directors as the Italian Riccardo Muti and the Belgian Rene Jacobs. As the first counter-tenor to sign a contract with the renowned Deutsche Grammophon (DG), he has released numerous CDs so far on a variety of labels. Among other works, the concert at Mito will primarily feature opera arias by Handel-Fagioli's forte--to be performed jointly with a period-instrument orchestra composed of twenty members.
