About the Event
Welcome the New Year with the ensemble I Musici Veneziani and celebrate with music by Mozart, Strauss, Pergolesi, Verdi and others.
The accomplished musicians of I Musici Veneziani greet the new year with an exceptional opera performance. Dressed in 18th century Venetian costumes, the expanded ensemble (14 musicians) is joined by soprano Vittoria Boldrin, the tenor Massimo Cagnin, and baritone Nico Mamone.
The experienced orchestra musicians of I Musici Veneziani perform with well‐known opera singers from all around the world.
Established in 1996 with the aim of recreating the artistic tradition of the Republica Serenissima’s most splendid period, the I Musici Veneziani Orchestra, is formed of some of the most skillful Venetian musicians and singers.
It is still the only classical orchestra in the world where the musicians wear baroque style dresses created from original designs.

This is more glam‐pop show‐biz and it’s musicality inferior to other splendid concerts we’ve seen in Vienna and Venice. The tenor soloist rescued a flat first half with his bounce and humour at the beginning of the second. It’s a light hearted evening of light hearted entertainment and as such quite pleasant.
We got there 45 minutes before the event started and there was already a line; we ended up sitting in the 5th row; so get there early to get the best seats.
An excellent evening of baroque and opera on New Years Eve!
