After a sell-out debut in Adelaide that left fans requesting a repeat performance, Canzoni Di Mio Padre is now set to wow Melbourne audiences on the Elisabeth Murdoch Hall stage for two performances on Sunday 1 May 2016.
With all the passion that Italy is known and loved for, Canzoni Di Mio Padre is the brainchild of talented musician, orchestrator, arranger and conductor Daniele Ciurleo, who will present an acclaimed collection of Neapolitan and popular Italian songs performed by tenor soloists Shanul Sharma and David Visentin.
Taking audiences on a journey through Italy’s music history, Daniele’s unique and much loved style promises to wow music lovers of all ages and backgrounds. Executed in the style of operatic legends such as Enrico Caruso, Claudio Villa, and Luciano Pavarotti, and with the backing of a 55 piece symphonic orchestra, Ciurleo’s unique style of arrangements will see music of the past and future collide.
Shanul Sharma swapped his career as the lead singer in a heavy metal band for the life of an operatic singer just over 3 years ago, and has since performed in the likes of Phantom of the Opera and Miss Saigon. Joining him on stage, David Visentin’s Italian upbringing and career in opera makes him the perfect choice for the beautiful arrangement that is Canzoni Di Mio Padre.
