Vincenzo Bellini, with the Overture and the aria "È serbata a questo acciaro." Giuseppe Verdi and La Traviata cannot be missed, with the Prelude from Act I and the aria "Lunge da lei." Grand finale with the Symphonic Prelude from Giacomo Puccini and "Che gelida manina" from La Bohème in an evening that promises many surprises.
