Verdi’s most spectacular opera, Aida, was received with great enthusiasm at its Milan premiere in n 1871, and is equally well received today. This amaz-ing story, inspired by ancient Egypt and its mystical al ul rituals and forbidden passion is filled with beautiful arias, powerful choirs, ballet scenes and exciting orchestral music. Their voices have been described as angelic as they sing in unison and the music is poured out of their hearts. It will be an amazing thing to see how one of the best known boys’ choirs in the world performs music by Mozart, Schubert, Haydn as well as popular European folk songs.

Alternative rock stalwarts from the 80s and 90s who ripped into the scene, then split, and in 2005 reunited. Since then they’ve produced a few albums, stayed together, and mellowed a tad, but the raging rock of old is still there. Front-man J Mascis’ guitar solos can vouch for that. These pianists have enough experience and credibility between the two of them, which makes for quite the artistic journey; the question remains in how to tell them apart as their synergy is so strong. They pound those 88 keys, producing a concoction of atmospheric, harmonic, and rhythmic jazz standards.

Previously known as the Spring Jazz Review, this event hasn’t lost any of its vivacious, creative, or spontaneous energy as it features some of the world’s biggest names in the genre. As leading jazz trombonist J. J Johnson once said “Jazz is restless, it won’t stay put and it never will”, which this event surely testifies to. Jessie is a young British vocalist who has seen four tracks in the UK Top 100 over the last year or so. Many dub her as the perfect balance between Sade and Whitney Houston, but this artist can embellish the deep electro pop sounds in the background of her music with a voice that marvels. From back-up singer to lead singer, she’s primed for the next step. The premiere of a fairy-tale, historical myth, and d tragic love story, all combined in one epic tale. e. Wagner’s famous opera is inspired by the medi-eval epic Garin de Lohengrin and, along with itss incredible hypnotic music, creates one of the most beautiful operas of the German Romantic period. Where can I take the kids today? Look no further; the essence of this festival is theatre for kids. Itt attracts the best productions for children, with h a strong national and international contingentt always buzzing around. Usually held during springg holidays, over 5000 visitors partake and best of all, it is for free. Catch your breath as this part of Europe is about to see the biggest exhibition of Picasso’s works with 56 original paintings and sculptures as well as 40 photos which are all kept in the Parisian Mu-seum of Pablo Picasso. The exhibition will reveall all the artistic stages of this genius artist and a special focus will be on Picasso’s great muse and one of the biggest loves of his life, a Croatian Dora Maar, who greatly influenced his life and art work.
