Every July, Andrea Bocelli performs at the Teatro Del Silenzio in Tuscany, Italy, while for the rest of the year the amphitheatre remains silent. The acclaimed Italian tenor gave some epic concerts this year with an orchestra, dancers and other singers like sopranos Clara Barbier Serrano and Francesca Maionchi. However, during one of the shows, the musicians had to leave the stage due to the rain but Bocelli remained on stage to sing for his audience.
Bocelli sat on a stool with an acoustic guitar to sing The Beatles’ Yesterday.
While the 62-year-old shared a moment of “magic in the rain” as he was joined on stage by his 9-year-old daughter Virginia Bocelli to sing a duet of Hallelujah.
Since last Christmas, the pair have regularly performed the Leonard Cohen anthem live at venues around the world from the USA to Saudi Arabia.
Despite the testing weather, Bocelli managed to give a beautiful rendition that the audience went wild for.
And when it came to Bocelli performing Nessun Dorma, the orchestra remained off stage due to the rain.
However, the 62-year-old continued to sing on and towards the end, Virginia joined her father on stage to hold his hand alongside the other performers.
Meanwhile, the Italian tenor has announced a 10th-anniversary edition of his One Night In Central Park album featuring new recordings such as O Sole Mio.
He originally recorded the live album at a special concert in New York on September 15, 2011.
The re-mastered record is dedicated to the memory of Bocelli’s late beloved father, who never had the chance to visit the USA.
On that night 10 years ago, the tenor was joined on stage by the likes of Celine Dion, Tony Bennett, David Foster and Chris Botti.
The Central Park venue was filled with over 70,000 people and over 200 musicians adorned the Great Lawn.
Concerto: One Night In Central Park 10th anniversary album is released on September 10, 2021.
