Saimir Pirgu will perform for Rosenblatt Recitals, London’s only concert series of world-class opera and song which take place at Wigmore Hall, one of London’s most prestigious performance venues.
Pirgu is one of the most exciting singers to come out of Albania in recent years; Opera Today described the 33 year-old as “one of the world’s most important interpreters of lyric tenor roles”. He has performed at some of the top operatic venues in the world, including the Royal Opera House, La Scala in Milan and the New York Metropolitan and it is a concert that is not to be missed. His programme will include works by some of the giants from the opera world, including Mozart, Verdi, Gluck and Bononcini.
