WORLDWIDE celebrated opera tenor, Stefan Pop will perform a recital this Saturday at St George’s Hall as part of the hugely successful The Liverpool Opera – Four Seasons® concert series.  It will be the third in the highly acclaimed series of operas presented by Guliand Management who have brought the stars of Plácido Domingo’s Operalia, the World Opera Competition, to Liverpool. Pop will follow the huge successes of Russian soprano Ekaterina Lekhina and Chinese Met Opera baritone Yunpeng Wang who have performed at St George’s Hall to standing ovations. Stefan Pop is the winner of many competitions including most recently, the Seoul International Music Competition and Plácido Domingo’s Operalia in 2010.  And despite his youth, Stefan has already appeared at Royal Opera House Covent Garden, La Scala Milan, Wiener Staatsoper, Teatro Verdi Trieste, Hamburg Staatsoper, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Opera di Roma, Tel Aviv Opera, Zurich Opera, Teatro Carlo Felice Genoa, Bolshoi Theatre Moscow and Mikhailovsky Theatre St Petersburg. Stefan made his international debut in the role of ‘Alfred’ in Zeffirelli’s production of La Traviata at Opera di Roma in 2009. On the concert platform he has recently appeared in three concerts in Asia and one at Royal Opera House Oman with Angela Gheorghiu and at the Viva Musica Festival in Bratislava. Recent highlights include his debut as Rodolfo in La Boheme at the Salle Pleyel in Paris, Alfredo in La Traviata in Menorca, Faust in Hong Kong and Der Rosenkavalier at the Salzburg Festival. And recently the popular tenor has been performing at the Napoli Teatro di San Carlo, Opera di Genova and preparing for an international concert tour which will start in the summer of 2016 at the Konzerthaus Vienna. Stefan’s programme at St George’s Hall next month will feature the world’s most popular tenor hit songs including La donna mobile (G. Verdi Rigoletto) Che gelida manina (G. Puccini: La Bohéme), Nessun dorma (G. Puccini: Turandot) Granada and O Sole Mio among others. Co-founder of the Liverpool Opera Four Seasons, the well-known Hungarian actor Gyula Mesterházy said: “Stefan Pop has a sophisticated vocal technique and suggestive personality coupled with a bright, very special, beautiful colourful voice. He is widely regarded as one of the most in-demand tenors in Europe and Asia in the bel canto repertoire. “We are very pleased to cooperate with the International Festival for Business 2016. It would be great if the Liverpool Opera Four Seasons series could add to the cultural diversity of Liverpool.” For further information, please visit www.StGeorgesLiverpool.co.uk EVENT DETAILS The Liverpool Opera – Four Seasons featuring Stefan Pop The Concert Room, St George’s Hall, St George’s Place, Liverpool, L1 1JJ Entrance via North Hall (opposite Walker Art Gallery) Saturday, 25 June 2016 Performance time: 7.30pm / doors open 6.30pm TICKETS: £12 / £25 / £75 VIP Ticket prices include booking fee.
