Bocelli to sing in 'Theater of Silence'

FLORENCE, Italy, June 13 (UPI) -- Andrea Bocelli finally will realize his dream of hosting a concert of classic opera when he performs next month in his home town of Lajatico, Italy.

Bocelli, one of Italy's most popular stars, will perform opera with support from an entire symphony orchestra and chorus at a venue named the "Theater of Silence," ANSA reports.

The venue's name was created by its architects based on the concept that after the completion of the concert only the sounds of nature would remain in the area.

ANSA reports that while Bocelli will be the only performer at the July 27 concert, he has talked about plans to expand the event in years to come to include performances from numerous international stars.

"Once a year we will host a concert of beautiful music. I hope to bring people from all over the world to perform some of the greatest and immortal opera arias, especially Italian, along with classic Italian songs," Bocelli said.
