2013 Teatro del Silenzio Andrea Bocelli Concert

 

The stunning Teatro del Silenzio (translated in English as Theatre of Silence) is an Italian open air amphitheatre built in 2006 with the influence of renowned classical and operatic singer, Andrea Bocelli. Located in Bocelli’s beloved hometown Lajatico in Tuscany, he was a substantial contributor in the conception of the land mark and also financially towards its construction.

Bocelli agrees to perform an open air ‘birthday’ concert every year with a lavish night of classical music, art and dance, which takes place on July 13th this year. Throughout the rest of the year, the theatre sits silent as a grand landmark in the gorgeous Tuscan landscape, while showcasing the work of acclaimed sculptors and artists such as Igor Mitoraj and Kurt Laurenz Metzler.  As the honorary president of Teatro del Silenzio, Andrea Bocelli sings both alone and with special guests (such as Katherine Jenkins and Italian pop star Elisa) and the annual concert has become a spectacular, eagerly awaited event for both locals and those who travel from all over the world. 

There is also a dress rehearsal, which takes place the night before and the sheer popularity and success of this event has ensured that tickets are sold to the public to enjoy this night as well.  Two large screens sitting each side of the stage portray not only those performing on stage, but also artists painting murals outside the stone walls during the show. The amphitheatre is surrounded with the stunning panoramic view of landscape, with endless fields and rolling countryside with the south east lights of Volterra visible from over the hill in the far distance.

Just a short drive from the theatre is Poggio Valdera, a stylish converted farmhouse that embraces the true natural and cultural beauty of Tuscany. Those staying here during this week will be able to park at the bottom of the hill and make their way up the slope to the grand spectacle. Poggio Valdera accommodates up to 14 guests and enjoys mesmerizing views of the landscape. With generously sized grounds and a private swimming pool, it is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing escape with friends and family and of course a visit to this spectacular concert.
