The famous flutist will perform pieces from the operatic repertoire accompanied by pianist Amedeo Salvato, master of score at the School of Italian Opera in Bologna and partner of famous voices, as well as of Maestro Griminelli.

On October 25th, in Dubai, concert Opera and Cinema, dedicated to two traditional arts that undoubtedly make Emilia-Romagna a major reference point worldwide. Andrea Griminelli’s flute will be accompanied by Amedeo Salvato’s piano and by the voices of soprano Claudia Sasso and tenor Jenishbek Ysmanov, two young and talented heirs of the Modenese tradition of “Bel canto” conveyed by the schools of Mirella Freni and of Luciano Pavarotti, who have already successfully appeared on the international scene.

After the concerts, Luca Marchini, executive chef of the ‘Pavarotti Restaurant Museum’, will propose his narrative menu The taste of music, that, with courses preferred by Giuseppe Verdi and by his beloved friend ‘Big Luciano‘, is in turn inspired to the strong gastronomic and cultural identity of Emilia-Romagna.
