We had the incredible pleasure of going to see Andrea Bocelli in concert in Tampa this Valentine’s Day! He was incredible, as always. It was a special concert consisting of opera arias and beloved favorites.
I immediately recognized the happy Libiamo i lieti calici, the Brindisi from Traviata. Every time I hear it I have to stop myself from clapping along like the crowds in San Marco when the orchestras play it! Of course, his version was extra special.
My beloved Con Te Partiro` sent tears streaming down my face, and I wasn’t alone! It was an unforgettable evening. Go see him if ever you have the chance!
Did you know the Bocelli family has a beautiful wine estate in Tuscany producing great Tuscan wines? I recently learned this, and was excited to see this bottle of Sangiovese on the shelf at a store here in Tampa! Highly recommended if you’re able to find it!
Salute, e Buon San Valentino,
