Tonight, at 6p, if you’re not headed for one of the many Biennale suorÃ©es, inaugurazioni, and other festivities held throughout the city, you might enjoy stopping by San Leonardo at 6p. The opening there is for a show with works painted by the students of a course offered by Professor Maurizio Favaretto. Sara Bardino, an extraordinary mezzosoprano (and my voice instructor) along with Davide Sibilla will be performing a variety of selections, lyric and otherwise (Voi che sapete…). Nothing amateur about this, my friends, you’d be doing yourself a favor by stopping in.
- Friday, June 8, 6p
- San Leonardo
- Rio TerÃ San Leonardo, just below the Guglie bridge.
- No charge
- From the San Marcuola stop, head toward the main Rio TerÃ and turn left. San Leonardo is at the back of a big campo on the left.
About the school (if you can’t read Italian, just look at the illustrations):
Oh, and Sara’s students have upcoming concerts on the Thursday the 21st and Monday the 25th, at the Scuola Grande di San Teodoro, across from the Chiesa di San Salvador near the Rialto bridge on the San Marco side. These are free concerts, all locals (I am the only import), including one night of lyric opera selections (Rossini, Bellini, and more), another consisting of plethora of delightful Handel duets. Details to follow!
