Soloists from the United States, Italy and China will perform in Verdi’s Requiem at the Sofia Opera and Ballet. The event on April 13 will feature soprano Courtney Mills, mezzo Isabel de Paoli, tenor Diego Cavazzin and basso Liu Yitian under the baton of Constantin Trinks, the organizers said.
The Sofia Opera orchestra and choir are also part of the performance. Violeta Dimitrova will conduct the choir.
