Affectionately known as ‘Penrith’s Pavarotti’, acclaimed tenor, Lorenzo Rositano will perform alongside the crème de la crème of opera’s emerging artists including Bridget Patterson, Paul Smith and New Yorker Sarah Toth at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre on Sunday, November 4.

Joined on stage by accompanist Benjamin Burton these talented singers will present a program of operatic favourites and musical theatre numbers.

Their repertoire will include selections from ‘La Boheme’, ‘Rigoletto’, ‘La Traviata’, ‘The Barber of Seville’, ‘Man of La Mancha’, ‘Porgy and Bess’, ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ and many more.

24-year-old Lorenzo Rositano claimed national headlines in 2006 when he was selected by the Australian Olympic Committee to perform the Australian national anthem at the Winter Olympics Games in Turin, Italy.

A graduate of the prestigious Talent Development Project, this program was developed and is directed by Mary Lopez, the former director of the Schools Spectacular.

Lorenzo’s early training was at the Penrith Conservatorium of Music and he has since completed an Advanced Diploma of Opera at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.

This will be one of the rare chances to see one of our locals performing back at home. Don’t miss ‘Lorenzo & Friends’ at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre this Sunday, November 4 at 3pm.

Tickets are $30 for adults and $25 for concessions.
