Ildebrando d'Arcangelo's Mozart Trilogy

Two of the world's greatest artists, Diana Damrau and Ildebrando d'Arcangelo, teamed up with Riccardo Muti in 2006 for a performance of "Tutto è tranquilo e placido" from Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro in Vienna. He is currently performing the opera at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich with fellow barihunk Mariusz Kwiecien. Tickets are almost completely sold out, so order now if you plan on attending.

We're posting this video to preview d'Arcangelo's mastery of the Mozart Trilogy: Nozze, Giovanni and Cosi.

The Italian barihunk recently performed Cosi fan tutte at the Opéra de Paris with fellow barihunk Paolo Szot. In December, he pairs up with Mozart and yet another barihunk as he performs Don Giovanni opposite Alex Esposito's internationally acclaimed Leporello. The performance will be at the Staatsoper in Vienna under Franz Welser-Möst.

 In January 2011, d'Arcangelo returns to Vienna to perform Cosi again under conductor Jérémie Rhorer.
