Mr. Bernheim makes his role debut in his second Puccini piece of the season, Messa di Gloria, in London at the Barbican Centre on March 3rd. This is the tenor’s second Mass with Maestro Pappano this season, Verdi’s Requiem at the Royal Opera House in October being his first. Mr. Bernheim is joined by Canadian bass-baritone Gerald Finley, the London Symphony Orchestra and the and the London Symphony Chorus. Though Puccini wrote this mass in 1878 as his graduation exercise from the Instituto Musicale Pacini, it was not reprised until 1952, to resounding acclaim. This musical treat will also be broadcast on Medici TV.
