Tenor René Barbera will embark on a four-city European tour May 22-June 7, 2018 with Maestro Riccardo Chailly and the Chorus and Orchestra of Teatro alla Scala. Performing the Verdi Requiem with soprano Tamara Wilson, mezzo-soprano Ekaterina Gubanova, and bass Ferruccio Furlanetto, the ensemble will perform in Pavia, Italy; Hamburg, Germany; and Paris, France.

Of his last performance of the Requiem in London, Bachtrack noted, “tenor René Barbera free-wheeled through the score, singing with ease and assuredness especially with his first Kyrie eleison, and subsequently in the Offertorio which was effortless and charming.”
