Reprise of the creation at the Festival un Violon sur le sable in Royan.
This is the story of three friends, the soprano Amélie Robins, the tenor-guitarist Florian Laconi and the pianist Philippe Brocard, who met during their operatic career.
These three talents share a heterogeneous and atypical background with the desire to mix genres, but above all the love of opera, to share it, to sometimes transform it to always sublimate it and offer it to an audience that is both novice and connoisseur.
These artists will take you on a journey, with humour and a lot of self-mockery, into a world that is certainly lyrical but above all unexpected, from Donizetti to Piaf, via Verdi and Ella Fitzgerald, a world for everyone, where you can play the game... but above all, not seriously!
Amélie ROBINS, soprano
Amélie Robins is a coloratura lyric soprano. Her "elegant lyric soprano timbre, her wide range and easy vocalisations, as well as the theatricality of her playing" (resmusica.com) made her noticed very early on by Leontina Vaduva and Ruggero Raimondi, with whom she did master classes and coaching.
Florian LACONI, tenor and guitar
Florian Laconi, French-Italian tenor, was born in Metz where he studied Dramatic Art and took part in many plays as an actor but also as a director. He studied singing with Michèle Command, Gabriel Bacquier and Christian Jean. His career as a soloist began with the title role in Gounod's Faust. Since then, he has sung under the direction of world-renowned conductors.
Philippe BROCARD, piano
Philippe Brocard discovered music through the piano at the age of 5. After working successively with Claire Delcros and Denise Rivière, he participated in master classes, notably with François René Duchable. He gradually turned to jazz and improvisation thanks to Francis Cousté.
His programme includes Verdi, Gounod, Bernstein, Bizet, Mozart, Donizetti, Gershwin...
