TOGETHER TO REMEMBER RENATA TEBALDI AFTER 15 YEARS FROM HER DEATH
The playbill of “Celebrations of the 15th Anniversary of Renata Tebaldi’s death” has been launched in Milan. It is composed by different events that the Renata Tebaldi Foundation has thought for the 15th year of its activity.
The Foundation has been established in San Marino on December 2004 with the approval of Renata Tebaldi, the same place where she died on December 2019.
“Fifteen years without Renata and fifteen years of work that nowadays have brought us to announce a playbill realised with some big Musical Institutions” Renata Tebaldi Foundation President Niksa Simetovic said in Milan “our aim is to help young talents of the opera world giving them real opportunities of study and work, as Renata wanted to”.
In fact, that’s the mission of the Foundation that from 2005 organizes the International Voice Compatition, a competition that “imposed itself worldwide for its quality and professionalism obtaining the approval of the critics, audience and the candidates themselves” Renata Tebaldi Foundation Artisitc Secretariat, Barbara Andreini told. “We are collaborating with Teatro di San Carlo, Teatro alla Scala, Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Conservatory of Parma, Historic Archive of Tullio Serafin. Our masterclasses will have as teachers two international artists who followed in Renata’s footsteps: Fiorenza Cedolins and Barbara Frittoli” she added.
Important names and prestigious collaborations to remember the Angel Voice: the celebrations started in San Marino on April 13 and they will continue in autumn in Naples on September 17, in Parma on October 12, in Rome on December 1 and in Milan on December 19. Concerts and conferences will alternate themselves with training moments of the FRT belcanto project in which the sopranos Fiorenza Cedolins and Barbara Frittoli will give courses on vocal and musical high proficiency.
“My masterclasses will be focused on Tebaldi’s roles. We will listen her recordings and we will start our study from them as I did when I started my personal path” Cedolins said during the event in Milan.
A rich program and some surprises will come, a playbill full of appointments that from the Republic of San Marino will touch all the music temples. These events, with free entry, have been thought to better know Renata Tebaldi and her art and to listen the voices of the young talents who made their careers thanks to her Competition “our country is proud of these events not only for the prestige that the Foundation has gained in 15 years of its activity but even for the international value of the current work and the next planning” Delegate of the State Secretariat of Foreign Affairs Maria Katia Savoretti declared in Milan. The event even boasts the patronages of the State Secretariat of Education and Culture, Turism and Health.
This is an important goal for the Renata Tebaldi Foundation and at the same time it is a new start: in name of Renata, for the new generations and for music that is joy, art, life and career.
