BRITISH Mezzo soprano CARLY PAOLI will host The Concert at The Castle, a night of music starring legendary tenor JOSÉ CARRERAS at Northumberland’s Otterburn Castle this summer.
Classically-trained Carly, will headline a night of entertainment at Otterburn on the 12th of July 2015, alongside iconic Spanish tenor CARRERAS, best known for his performances as part of The Three Tenors. Other special guests will include The People’s Tenor RUSSELL WATSON, American soprano CYNTHIA LAWRENCE, Italian tenor ALESSANDRO SAFINA and celebrated flautist ANDREA GRIMINELLI.
Carly said: “I’m so excited to announce The Concert at the Castle on July 12th. My team and I have spent months planning this event and I’m delighted we’re bringing the incredible JOSÉ CARRERAS and some of the world’s most talented singers to the beautiful village of Otterburn. Otterburn is one of the most spectacular parts of the UK and I’ve been bowled over by the beauty of the landscape and the rich history of the region. I want everyone to feel part of what I hope will be a magical summer night of world-class performances that will create incredible memories to echo long after the final encore.“
The 11th Century Castle will provide a glittering backdrop for this unique event that will also include video projections against the castle ramparts. Otterburn Castle is a Grade II listed building founded in 1086 and set within Northumberland National Park, which covers over 400 square miles of surrounding countryside. Otterburn village is also located half a mile from the site of the historic Battle of Otterburn, where the English army suffered a bloody defeat by the Scots in 1388.
