Starry, starry nights

Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu.

On June 23, 2001 (World Olympic Day), Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras, the Three Tenors performed at the Forbidden City, using their heavenly high Cs to express their support for Beijing's bid to host the 2008 Games. Now, as the big event draws near, the city once again prepares to host a true A-list cast of world opera performers.

As one of the highlights of the Meet in Beijing 2008 Olympic Arts Festival, the Divas in Beijing concert series will feature Renee Fleming, Angela Gheorghiu and Sumi Jo. Other concerts starring new-generation tenors Marcello Giordani, Salvatore Licitra, Roman Vargas, Jonas Kaufmann and baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky will also be given at the National Center for the Performing Arts and the Great Hall of the People.

The divas and tenors gala concerts will be a feast for both local opera fans and international visitors to Beijing.
