One of the most popular singers in the world, Andrea Bocelli, is finally coming to Romania! The beloved Italian tenor, who lost his sight after a football accident, decided to organize two main concerts in the Romanian capital and in the second most important cultural city in the same country, Cluj. The concerts are part of Bocelli’s World Tour 2017, which focuses on the 20-year anniversary of his album ‘Romanza’. It will be launched in a special version following the concerts.

The concert will be divided into two parts. During the first part of his concert, Andrea Bocelli will sing famous opera songs with his own unique voice. The second part of the concert will focus on Bocelli’s most famous songs from his last albums, ‘Cinema’ and ‘Romanza’, the 20-year anniversary version.

The concert goers will see and listen to Andrea Bocelli singing some of the songs that made him famous, songs from famous musicals such as West Side Story, as well as songs from movies such as The Godfather, The Postman, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and many more. Most of the songs are part of the Romanza album, which is Bocelli’s most successful album of all time, having been sold in more copies than any other Italian album ever.

Bocelli’s World Tour 2017 takes place in 18 countries all around the world and in cities such as Miami, Oslo, Atlanta, Copenhagen, Budapest, Helsinki and many more. The concerts in Cluj and Bucharest have been advertised as concerts that bring people together. Andrea Bocelli’s songs, known for their sensibility and the emotional attachment each of them has, have the possibility to bring people together. His unique voice which cannot be matched by anyone in the world, combined with the fact that he is blind truly makes his concerts a blessing and an event that anyone must participate in.

The ‘Romanza’ album is by far Andrea Bocelli’s most popular album, containing famous songs such as Vivo Per Lei, Miserere, Vivere and of course, Romanza, the song that lends its name to the album. It was sold in 20 million copies worldwide, which makes it the most popular Italian album of all time. Together with ‘Romanza’, Andrea Bocelli has released 16 studio albums, generally one every two years. After gaining international attention, he began collaborating with famous names from the international pop scene such as Celine Dion and lately, Ariana Grande.

Andrea Bocelli’s singing style has been described by many opera connoisseurs as unique. Although there are plenty of tenors all around the world, his voice is much warmer and its beauty ‘touches the listener’, as the Puerto Rican soprano Ana Maria Martinez stated once about the man she often collaborates with. The great tenor Luciano Pavarotti, after hearing him sing, supported him and pushed him to record a song with a famous rock star, Zucchero, a song that would eventually catapult him to international fame. After this collaboration, his career began going up and it has not started ever since. He also has his own star on Los Angeles’ Hollywood Boulevard which he received in 2013.

The concerts that will be organized in Bucharest and Cluj aim to give the people an unforgettable experience. They will be able to listen to Andrea Bocelli’s greatest hits, together with new songs from his last two albums, which in itself is a great experience. However, this tour focuses on creating a magical atmosphere which, coupled with Bocelli’s stunning voice, will be worth every penny.

The concerts will also have special props that will enhance the experience of the audience. Bocelli will sing opera songs, as well as popular pop songs loved by millions, mixed with opera elements that made him famous. All in all, this will be a great experience. There are many discounts for the tickets offered by phone companies, particularly Telekom, who is a major sponsor of these concerts. Hurry up and get your own ticket! Losing this great opportunity is not worth anything in the world!

The Romanian National Opera Bucharest

, , , Posted by on
The Romanian National Opera Bucharest Building

The Romanian National Opera Bucharest is one of the four National Operas in Romania and it is considered the largest lyrical theater in the country. The name “Romanian Opera” was used nationwide long before a special building was designated for hosting the many local opera and ballet shows. The writer, conductor and singer George Stephanescu is the one who has always fought for creating this artistic institution, which he funded under the name “The Romanian Opera Company”.

The Romanian lyric theater tradition has more than two centuries, marked by outstanding artists that have enriched our country’s musical culture. At the beginning of 1772 historians mention the presence of an opera band in Bucharest, but only in 1919 the Romanian National Opera was funded. Starting then, it has become the first lyrical stage in the country where the most important opera concerts were held. Its repertory includes over 150 titles of opera and ballet, some of the most diversified and spectacular International music pieces ever created.

A particular attention was shown to the development of the Romanian classical music, which has known a remarkable progress thanks to the work of world famous writers such as Gheorghe Dumitrescu, George Enescu, Zeno Vancea, Alfred Mendelsohn, Mircea Kiriac, Laurentiu Profeta and Cornel Trailescu. The new location of the Romanian National Opera was built in 1953, in Bucharest, and it represents a more appropriate and elegant setting for hosting the wonderful and rich opera and ballet stage offered by Romanian culture.

Bucharest’s lyrical band was launched on the 8th of May 1885, hosting progressively a repertory that became richer by the day. At the beginning, the company included mostly Italian and French opera that were very popular at that moment, but also comedy opera from the National portfolio, in which debuted some of the most iconic Romanian voices of all time.

Although the existence of an artistic Romanian band of lyrical theater known as the Romanian Opera Company was made public in 1885, the founding of the Romanian Opera as an institution financed by the Public Budget was possible only in 1921. The absolute premiere took place with the Lohengrin opera show under the directions of George Enescu.

The current building of the Romanian Opera, with a capacity of 952 places, was constructed in 1953 according to the sketch of the famous architect Octav Doicescu. It was named the Opera and Ballet Theater and it was focused on two big International events: the third World Youth Congress (25-30 July) and the fourth World Festival of Youth and Students (2-14 August), but it was inaugurated only on the 9th of January 1954 when the “Queen of Spades” opera show by Piotr Ilici Ceaikovski was hosted.

The façade of the building has a portico with three monumental arcades decorated with the statues of four muses and three access doors which allow the entrance in the sumptuous lobby constructed on two levels. The building is listed on the list of Bucharest’s historical monuments with the code B-II-m-B-19004.

The opera hall has a horseshoe shape. The stage is 24 meters wide, 20 meters deep and 30 meters tall. At the last floor there is the Opera Museum. In the park located in front of the building there is the statue of the great musician George Enescu, a bronze sculpture made by Ion Jalea. Also in front of the building, but facing the entrance, there is the statue of the writer Gheorghe Stephanescu (1843 – 1925), the founder of the Romanian Opera.

On the building’s front side instead of two smaller arcades, which used to initially frame the larger ones, two reliefs were added, one that depicts an opera scene (made by the sculptors Zoe Baicoianu and Boris Caragea), and the other of two ballet dancers flying( the sculptor being Ion Vlad). In the opera hall there is a magnificent chandelier with 100 branches made on golden crystal. Occasionally, some shows are hosted in the Yellow Foyer, which has a capacity of maximum 200 places.

After her concert in Zurich that will be held on the 12 of August Rihanna will fly to Bucharest where she will spend an entire day resting and preparing for the big event. She will meet her fans on Sunday night where she will impress everyone with her amazing performance.

Various locations were considered, but in the end, it was decided that the concert will take place in the “Constitution Square”. It seems that this location is very popular among foreign artists since the pictures posted by Robbie Williams and Bon Jovi after their concerts in Romania circled the globe, becoming one of the most preferred sites for concert planners.

As we were saying earlier, there’s more! Rihanna doesn’t want to sing with local artists at the opening of her concerts. She wants a sure bet so she decided to opt for The Weekend, a singer that enjoys a great success these days. Recently, the artist has received a Grammy award for the soundtrack of “Fifty shades of Grey” and it is always present in the most important top 10s. The Weekend will walk on the stage from “Constitution Square” at 20:00 o’clock and he will prepare the Romanian audience for an incredible concert.

The show will exceed all expectations, the décor will be unforgettable and the number of dancers will be over a couple dozens. The Barabados artist is famed for her unconventional appearances, hot choreography, provocative attitude and unique shows so this Romanian concert will surely be one of the most anticipated events ever.

In the meanwhile, Rihanna sets new records with her recent song “Work”. The controversial music video is one of the main factors of its success, the song being already number one in International tops. There are two versions of this video and both are equally explicit.

In august, before the concert in Romania, the 28 years old artist will sing in Sweden, Poland, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. This extensive European tour promotes her new album “Anti”. Until now, Rihanna has launched 8 studio albums that were sold in over 150 million copies worldwide. Her flaming career brought her 8 Grammy prizes as well.

The wait is over. Rihanna’s concert is a sure thing. The extremely popular artist will be on the 14th August in Bucharest to perform for us in the “Constitution Square”. This is one of the greatest events of 2016, a music recital that will make this summer truly unforgettable.

Adam Levine and its band will perform for their Romanian fans in the very popular “Constitution Square” from Bucharest. The much anticipated event will be hosted by Marcel Avram, East European Production and D&D East Entertainment. It is a project that was planned for a couple of years now as a response for the millions of fans who were looking forward for the chance to meet their music icons.

As expected, concert tickets to the Maroon 5 show don’t come cheap. There are several types of tickets available depending on the stage proximity. The Diamond Circle tickets cost 572,40 RON, Golden Circle tickets are 464,40 RON and Normal Circle/General Access are 194,40 RON. There were also 5000 General Access Early Bird tickets that were available at the promotional price of 151,20 RON. These were completely sold in less than 10 minutes after becoming available online.

Maroon 5 is promoting its 5th studio album called “V”. Launched in 2014, the disc was number one in the U.S. Billboard 200 charts. The band’s Bucharest concert is actually part of the “Maroon V Tour” started in February 2015 in the US.

Until now the “V” album was promoted through 5 singles: “Maps” and “Animals” in 2014, “Sugar”, This Summer’s Gonna Hurt like a Motherfucker” and “Feelings” in 2015. The songs were recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Max Martin, Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder from Onerepublic, Shellback and Sam Martin. The band worked for about a year at the album, and it is the result of the hard work of old crew members like Adam Levine, James Valentine, Mickey Madden, Matt Flynn, PJ Morton, and of the keyboardist Jesse Carmichael who took a break during the recording of the “Overexposed” material.

The band debuted in 1994 and its initial name was Kara’s Flowers. Only in 2001 the crew members felt that a name change was much needed. So when the guitar player James Valentine joined the band, they opted for “Maroon 5”. Since them, the members remained the same except the break took by Carmichael. The crew members are Adam Levine (voice and guitar), Jesse Carmichael (keyboards, synthesizers, guitar and backing vocals), Mickey Madden (bass), James Valentine (guitar, backing vocals), Matt Flynn (drums) and PJ Morton (keyboards and backing vocals).

According to Billboard, Maroon 5 occupies the 44th place in the list “Greatest of All Time Hot 100 Artists”. Some of the most famous songs launched by Maroon 5 are “She Will Be Loved”, “This Love”, “Payphone”, “Moves Like Jagger”, “One More Night”, “Misery”, “Won’t Go Home Without You”, “Sunday Morning” and “Animals”. Also, the debut single from the album “V” is called Maps and it set the record for the best start of a band in Top 40 from the last 18 years and it entered Top 100 in over 18 countries.

Maroon 5’s Bucharest concert is one of the most exciting events of 2016. It is a musical event that will gather a large crowd of fans who have been following the band’s evolution and amazing success throughout the years.

Only two tickets are available, the ones mentioned before, The General Access – Early Entry Ticket with a price of 200 Lei and the General Acces Ticket on the field, with the price of 140 lei.

Korn was formed in 1993 in Bakersfield, California and since then it has become one of the most successful nu metal bands in the world with a career spanning over 20 years. Currently the band is formed of the following members: James Shaffer, Brian Welch, Jonathan Davis, Ray Luzier and Reginald Arvizu. The band released the first album in 1993 and next year their second album, Follow the Leader and Issues (1998 and 1999), both reaching number one of the Billboard 200. This improved the band’s popularity and its mainstream success continued the following years with albums likes: Untouchables, Take a Look in the Mirror and See You On The Other Side.

In 2000 and 2003 Korn won Grammy Awards for the Best Short Form Video and the Best Rock performance and two MTV Video Music Awards for the clip Freak on a Leash along with other numerous awards and nominations.

There has been some controversy relating the lyrics used by Korn as the media has often portrayed them to use indecent, vulgar and not appropriate for children. T-Shirts of the band were often the reason some children got suspended as they were banned from some schools. Other controversy regarding the band was due to the tensions between the band and Welch who left the group due to his drug usage. However, in 2013 Welch re-joined the band after playing together to a couple of festivals and fans will be able to see the entire crew on stage in August.
