Vivica Genaux is undoubtedly one of the greatest opera singers working today. Born in Alaska, she perfected her skill in Italy – home of bel canto – and soon she took the world of classical music by storm. The acclaimed mezzo-soprano has performed on some of the most famous stages, including New York’s Metropolitan Opera, Opéra Garnier in Paris and Staatsoper in Berlin, and her albums have earned her four Grammy nominations. The Misteria Paschalia and Opera Rara festivals have introduced the singer to Cracovian audiences – and we will be able to hear her again on 13 November when she appears at the ICE Kraków Congress Centre with the concert Carte blanche. She will be accompanied by Capella Cracoviensis performing on historic instruments; the programme includes arias from Vivaldi and Handel’s operas and Corelli’s concerti grossi, showcasing Genaux’ beloved Baroque repertoire.
