Concerts and performances at the Amphithéâtre
Recital by Jean-François Borras
Presentation

Des Grieux, Roméo, Nemorino, Alfredo, Arturo, Edgardo: Jean-François Borras sings the roles of romantic heroes and sentimental lovelorn young men with a voice as velvet-like as it is elegant. This time he takes up the challenge of a recital with a made-to-measure programme spanning both France and Italy: Reynaldo Hahn's Venetian songs, Liszt's French elegies and Gounod's rare masterpiece, Biondina, a moving musical novel. After performing Cinna in La Vestale at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées, Jean-François Borras's Paris season reaches new heights.

Prologo: Da qualche tempo
Biondina bella
Jer l'ho scontrata
Le labbra ella compose
E stati al quanto
Ho messo nuove
Se come io son poeta
Siam' iti l'altro giorno
E le campane hanno suonato
Ell' è malata
Jer fu mandata
L'ho compagnata
