Soloists at the ERSO Opera Gala this year are the Estonian mezzo-soprano Annely Peebo and Danish baritone Morten Frank Larsen. While Annely Peebo is well known to the Estonian audiences, it is the first time for Morten Frank Larsen to perform in Estonia. Both soloists are active primarily in Vienna, engaged with performances regularly at the main opera houses of Austria: the Staatsoper and the Volksoper. Peebo and Larsen have performed together on both opera and concert stages, including the well known Festspielhaus St. Pölten in Vienna where they sang arias and duets from Rossini’s The Barber of Seville which will also be heard in the first half of our gala concert.
