On the occasion of Expo 2020, the Italian Cultural Institute of Abu Dhabi is promoting two live concerts by the Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio: ‘Around the World in 80 Minutes’ and ‘Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio all’Opera’. The two events will be held at the Dubai Millennium Amphitheatre at 7 p.m. on January 14 and 15, 2022, respectively.
Since its formation in 2002 in Rome’s par excellence multiethnic Esquilino district, the Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio has brought together a multitude of musicians from different backgrounds and geographical areas. By working together, experimenting, and blending different music and language registers, the musicians have given rise to a kind of beauty that only the mixing of stories, sounds, and cultures can create.
In ‘Around the World in 80 minutes’ the Orchestra’s musicians tell their artistic and personal stories by playing the songs they wrote. It’s the story of their journey from their native countries to Rome, their coming together, and the sharing of this incredible experience.
In ‘Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio all’Opera’ (OPV plays the Opera), the Orchestra presents its unique interpretation of a rich repertory of the most famous arias by Mozart, Bizet, and Verdi . The presence on stage of a wealth of instruments and languages belonging to all the cultures of the world thus creates a new ‘world sound’.
