Andrea Bocelli With: Florida Opera Festival Orchestra Conductor: Eugene Kohn Guest vocalist: Heather Headley Soprano: Svetla Vassileva With one of the most recognizable voices in music, Andrea Bocelli is a global icon who continues to defy categorization bringing his music to millions world-wide. The December 2013 tour comes in support of Bocelli’s recent release Passione which debuted at No. 2 on the overall Billboard charts, along with a brand new PBS television special Love in Portofino. Passione is a lush collection of Mediterranean love songs featuring duets with global pop stars Jennifer Lopez, Nelly Furtado and the late Edith Piaf. The album reunites Bocelli with 16-time Grammy Award-winning producer David Foster, who produced Bocelli’s 2006 release Amore, which sold more than 4.2 million copies. Accompanied by the Opera Tampa Orchestra and Chorus, Bocelli’s concert features music from his platinum-selling catalogue, covering both traditional and romantic crossover repertoire.
