IL FAUT PARTIR – Final Concert

27.06.2019, 8 p.m.

At the end of a very intensive programme and many productions, the students are leaving – for new horizons! Hopefully, they will realise their professional goals, and thus fulfil the dreams of many. 

We are reminded of the aria “Il faut partir”, in which Marie (La fille du régiment) heads for a new life, though with mixed feelings. 

With its belcanto repertory, this final concert puts the icing on the cake: Rossini, Donizetti, Cimarosa and Puccini are at the centre of the concert’s programme. Between spectacular demonstrations of virtuosity and introspective scenes, the audience is treated to a most interesting adventure: funny and serious, euphoric and melancholy, joyful and sad. 

In the finale of Il barbiere di Siviglia, all characters sing “May love and trust reign forever in your hearts”: a beautiful ending for our students on the way to their future in the world of opera.
