Famed opera singer Andrea Bocelli will be coming to audiences live on Easter Sunday from the historic Duomo Cathedral in Milan for an audience of none because the Duomo, like most public places, is closed due to the pandemic.
The concert will be live-streamed on the tenor’s YouTube channel starting at 1 pm EDT.
“On the day in which we celebrate the trust in a life that triumphs, I’m honored and happy to answer ‘Sì’ to the invitation of the City and the Duomo of Milan. I believe in the strength of praying together; I believe in the Christian Easter, a universal symbol of rebirth that everyone – whether they are believers or not – truly needs right now. Thanks to music, streamed live, bringing together millions of clasped hands everywhere in the world, we will hug this wounded Earth’s pulsing heart, this wonderful international forge that is reason for Italian pride. The generous, courageous, proactive Milan and the whole of Italy will be again, and very soon, a winning model, engine of a renaissance that we all hope for. It will be a joy to witness it, in the Duomo, during the Easter celebration which evokes the mystery of birth and rebirth” Andrea Bocelli
Wishing all of you a safe, healthy Easter!
