Ravenna Festival kicks off with two barihunks (and a hunkentenor)

Luca Dall'Amico
The Ravenna Festival is kicking off on November 8th with a gala concert of music from Mozart and Verdi. The next day they will launch "Trilogia D'Autunno" (Autumn Trilogy) which will feature three of Verdi's most popular operas: La traviata, Il Trovatore and Rigoletto.

Barihunk Luca Dall'Amico will be featured in both Rigoletto as Sparafucile and Ferrando in Il Trovatore. For all of you Hunkentenor fans, Bulent Bezduz will be singing Giorgio Germont in La traviata.

The festival runs through November 18th and tickets are available online.

Daniel Giulianini
Thursday's gala concert will feature a barihunk who is new to us, Daniel Giulianini. The concert is affordable, as well, with tickets only ten Euros (five Euros for those under 26). The program includes the duet "La ci darem la mano" from Don Giovanni, Germont's aria "Di Provenza" from La traviata, as well as the Violetta/Germont duet from the same opera.

Monica De Rosa McKay & Daniel Giulianini sing the Germont/Violetta duet:

Daniel Guilianini is a 23-year-old Italian baritone who studied with tenor William Matteuzzi. Guilianini was adopted from a Bulgarian orphanage by Italian parents at the age of six and started singing from a very early age. He attended the Forli Musical Lycée, where he studied classical singing, and for a short while the trombone. He apparently has a special fondness for singing Neapolitan songs.

He has won various regional competitions and in 2008 was runner up in Serata d'Onore, the national young opera singers' competition.
