- Opera-Brittania

SpectiCast, in association with Antydote, Boralys and Cheneliere Events, is excited to announce the cinematic release of acclaimed French tenor Roberto Alagna and his new project Little Italy, captured live at the Antic Arena at Fréjus in the French Riviera. Alagna creates an exhilarating experience for sophisticated aficionados and worldwide opera fans alike. As one of the most renowned tenors of all time, Alagna pays homage to the Italian American musicians who transformed American popular culture and music in the mid- 20th century. The film will begin exclusive screenings nationwide starting in January, 2014.

In Little Italy, Roberto Alagna distinguishes himself with an impressive radiant sound, renewing the classic standards of Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra, as well as extending his American homage to other artists of Italian heritage, including Mario Lanza, Nino Ferrer, Yves Montand and Serge Reggiani.

Robert Alagna’s Little Italy takes us on an epic musical journey from one continent to the other, offering audiences a condensation of a universal and eternal Italy, honoring the people of Italy who left to conquer new horizons.
