The return of the Italian tenor, the world’s best-selling classical music solo artist
At last, a legend for the new millennium. Andrea Bocelli’s special timbre has become his hallmark; full, powerful and versatile to the point that he can range from bel canto to the furore of verismo, from a sacred repertoire to popular ballads.
Andrea Bocelli has received several awards during his versatile and extensive career, such as “Album of the Year” and “Best Selling Classical Album of the Year” (2003), as well as “International Artist of the Year” (2012) at the prestigious “Classic Brit Awards”.
With the firm belief that solidarity is the only intelligent response to inequality, since the 1990s Andrea Bocelli has been involved in several important philanthropic events.
His life has inspired the biopic The Music of Silence which premiered in Italy in September 2017 and will be released in Spain at the Barcelona Film Festival, 20th-27th April 2018.
This summer, Andrea Bocelli will delight the audience of Cap Roig with his tremendous, powerful voice.
