Charles Castronovo sings Neopolitan Songs

  • Music
  • Italian opera

The young American tenor Charles Castronovo swaps the plush surroundings of the Royal opera House, where he normally performs in London, to sing in a tiny fringe theatre behind a pub. As Castronovo is singing Tamino in 'The Magic Flute' at the Royal Opera House during his King's Head run, a speeding motorbike is being laid on to race him from the curtain call at Covent Garden to north London in time for his 11pm performance.

Castronovo sings Dolce NapoliAlongside a starring role at the Royal Opera House, internationally-acclaimed tenor Charles Castronovo takes to the King's Head stage for six special performances. Charles performs songs from his CD Dolce Napoli: the Neapolitan Songs which features new interpretations of classic songs from Italy with his band. Charles captures the spirit of Naples in English and Italian, introducing these songs to new audiences in the same manner as the great Italian-American singers of the last generation, with a beautiful operatic voice that does them justice
