Andrea Bocelli and Toby Sebastian, one day at Cinecittà for the new film

One day at Cinecittà with Andrea Bocelli for THE MUSIC OF SILENCE, by Michael Radford.

A cameo of the famous singer adapted from his autobiography.

To give face and voice to the character of Andrea Bocelli is the English actor Toby Sebastian (Game of thrones) who along with Antonio Banderas, Luisa Ranieri, Jordi Mollà, Ennio Fantastichini e Nadir Caselli make up the cast of the prestigious international project. And yesterday on the set, at Cinecittà, arrived the great singer to film a cameo of the film dedicated to him THE MUSIC OF SILENCE, based on the eponymous autobiography published in Italy by De Agostini and directed by the British director Michael Radford (Il Postino,Il mercante di Venezia). In front of the grand piano, on stage, soft lights all around, Radford’ shots capture the famous Aria by Puccini Nessun dorma that is being sung by the Tuscan tenor.

Everyone knows Bocelli’s voice, his songs, the famous Opera arias interpretations, his international popularity. But less is known of his childhood and of the path that led him from Lajatico, a little village, in the Tuscan countryside, to the laurels of his current career. The screenplay is by Anna Pavignano and Michael Radford in cooperation with Andrea Bocelli. The Music of Silence, whose shooting is under way in Rome now, and then in Tuscany, is produced by Roberto Sessa for Picomedia and Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi for AMBI Media Group.

“The Music of Silence”, the movie based on the life of Andrea Bocelli

Antonio Banderas (“Once Upon a Time in Mexico,” “The Expendables 3”), Toby Sebastian (“Game of Thrones”) and Jordi Molla (“Bad Boys II,” “Riddick,” “Blow”) will star in a new movie “The Music of Silence, based on the life of Italian classical crossover tenor, recording artist, and singer-songwriter Andrea Bocelli, and his memoires of the same title. The film is being directed by Academy Award® nominee Michael Radford (“The Postman,” “The Merchant of Venice”).

 

This film will feature songs that Bocelli composed when he was young but have never before been released.

 

AMBI is financing and producing “The Music of Silence.”

Producers of the film are Andrea Iervolino, Monika Bacardi and Roberto Sessa.

 

Few singers have touched as many hearts as has Andrea Bocelli. The golden-voiced tenor has sung to sold-out audiences all over the world, and his legions of admirers have included Popes, Presidents, and Royals as well as some of the greatest stars of classical and popular music. In “The Music of Silence,” Bocelli tells his own story in the form of an autobiographical novel, naming his alter ego Amos Bardi. He writes of a loving family that encouraged his musical gifts from an early age, of the blindness that began with glaucoma and became complete after a soccer accident, and of the dedication that led to his professional breakthrough and his meteoric rise to stardom.

 

The first edition of Bocelli’s memoir was published in 1999 and focused on the success and difficulties at the beginnings of his astonishing career. An updated edition is an even deeper and more intimate analysis of his life, loves, and losses – the result of wisdom gained from the increased personal and artistic maturity gained in the subsequent decade of his life.

 

Toby Sebastian will play Bocelli (Amos) while Banderas will play the role of Maestro, and Molla will star as Amos’s father.  Luisa Ranieri (“Letters to Juliet”) will play Bocelli’s mother and Academy Award® nominee Ennio Fantastichini (“Open Doors”) his uncle.

 

The screenplay was written by Anna Pavignano and Michael Radford in collaboration with Andrea Bocelli.

 

AMBI Distribution, the worldwide sales arm of the AMBI Group, is handling global sales.

Principal photography began on November 7th in Rome.

Antonio Banderas is represented by Paradigm Talent Agency, Management firm Media Art Management, and law firm Hirsch Wallerstein Hayum Matlof and Fishman.

Jordi Mola is represented by Kuranda Management, Troika and Creative Partners Group.

Toby Sebastian is represented by United Agents, CAA and management firm Impression Entertainment.

12 months with Andrea Bocelli in his new 2015 calendar

He is the most beloved and acclaimed tenor in the world. He is the artist of Records; he is the most prestigious witness of Italian culture in the world. He is already a legend, sealed by the Hollywood star that shines in his honor. He is one of the great positive myths of the third millennium. He is a simple man and it is nice to have him for friend. He is Andrea Bocelli.

If a memory is a way to meet, this sort of extraordinary images that mark the New Year will be a privileged way to witness a very special relationship. To show the joy of a friendship, with a voice that is dear to you and that is part of the sound track of your life.

They are moments, impressions from recent adventures, (in music, in philanthropy, in the warmth of the family), to spend the entire 2015 together. It is a family album, affectionately intimate, even when surrounded by enormous crowds, because Andrea speaks to the heart of each, and of each he is a fellow citizen. 

Smiling and happy images, leafing through the pages of the calendar: Andrea and his piano while he is singing the “Forza del sorriso” which will be the EXPO hymn, then in the role of Turiddu on stage in the Teatro del Silenzio, then in the heart of Florence the cradle of the Renaissance at the Gala closing the first edition of the Italian Celebrity Fight Night, then relaxing with his beloved guitar, then along the canals of Venice next to Veronica, then with his family in his beautiful Tuscan house, then at table with George Clooney, then in the recording studio with his friend Maestro Domingo…

All this and much more, in an exclusive object, whose exterior beauty offers and suggests, every month, the beauty of a personal encounter, the one between you and one of the most significant artists of our times: Andrea, his music, the strong message of optimism that he embodies, his values (your values).

Andrea Bocelli in Concert Christmas Romance

November 28, 2015 at the O2 Arena Prague

The famous Italian tenor returns to Prague O2 arena with his Christmas Romance concert on November 28th, 2015.

Andrea Bocelli  dazzled the packed O2 arena when he was last here in 2013 and demand for the performance was so high that tickets sold out long before he went on stage. For those fans who weren’t able to see Bocelli in person, a promise was made that the world famous singer would return to Prague again soon.

The charismatic classical and pop music singer, whose star rose rapidly during the 90s, and who has sold over 80 million albums worldwide, is an acclaimed ambassador of Italian music who, this April, received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Billboard Latin Music Awards in Miami.

Also this year, Bocelli has released yet another successful album of opera, Manon Lescaut, along with Plácido Domingo and Ana Maria Martinéz. The lyrics to the song Tomorrow in Milan (“La Forza del Sorriso”) are sung to the music of composer Andrea Morricone (son of Ennio Morricone) and the song has become the soundtrack for Expo 2015.

Bocelli’s concerts are famous for their diverse repertoire drawing from many genres, and for outstanding duets with such stars as Zucchero, Sarah Brightman, Tony Bennett, Christina Aguilera and Celine Dion. At the beginning of his career, Bocelli enjoyed the patronage of stars such as Luciano Pavarotti and Zucchero. But it was the song “Con Te Partiró”, that catapulted him to worldwide fame and which he later sang in an unforgettable duet with Sarah Brightman as “Time to Say Goodbye”.

Bocelli’s Christmas Romance will see the Maestro perform classical arias from the most famous Italian and international operas. He will also delight the crowd with songs from his album, Love in Portofino, and possibly one or two surprises, and of course, songs reflecting the Christmas spirit will be part of the Repertoire as well.  The tenor will be accompanied by the Czech National Symphonic Orchestra along with its choir conducted by Maestro Marcello Rota  and other special guests, who will be announced later.

Tickets will be available through Ticketportal and at www.andreabocelli.com/tickets from October 6, 2014, with prices from 950 CZK to 12.500 CZK for a VIP Platinum package.

The VIP Platinum package includes tickets to the best seats right in front of the stage and cocktails before the concert.

Andrea Bocelli UK and Ireland tour 2014

Lindsey Stirling announced as Special Guest

Chart-topping violinist and YouTube Sensation

Youth Choirs to Perform Live with Bocelli for thousands of fans

One of the most exciting emerging talents in the classical music world will join the maestro Andrea Bocelli for his UK and Ireland tour. Lindsey Stirling is the American violinist who is revolutionising the classical world, amassing over 757 million YouTube views, topping the Billboard charts and selling out tours worldwide. Lindsey masterfully fuses classical violin styles with futuristic electronic beats. Her latest album Shatter Me topped the US Billboard Top Classical Albums, Dance/Electronic Albums and Independent Albums charts when it arrived in April. Like Bocelli before her, she is bringing classical music to new audiences and generations.

“The stage is a magical place,” says Andrea, “one can experience something very intimate: the compelling relationship and harmony between two artists, when they come together in music. I am really excited to see what will happen with Lindsey Stirling – an eclectic artist, full of energy and talent.  Music and dance coexist within her. Lindsey has a truly contagious sound!”

“I am excited, nervous, honoured, and even shocked to think that I get to perform with the greatest opera singer in the world,” adds Lindsey, “Wow, where is my violin? I need to start practicing immediately for this! But really, this is a huge honour and I can’t wait.”

The UK and Ireland will spend 4 nights in the company of Andrea Bocelli in November, a chance to revel in the romance and majesty of this stunning performer. And Andrea is supporting more new talent by inviting youth choirs to perform with him live on stage in front of thousands, one choir for each of the English cities he visits. To be in with a chance of winning this once in a lifetime prize, choirs should send a video of themselves performing to info@kililive.com by October 15th, stating which show they are entering the competition for. The world’s premiere classical music star, Andrea Bocelli returns to arenas for 4 nights, with shows featuring the repertoire that has made him famous throughout the world as a unique artist able to cross boundaries between classical and pop. While some stars sing ‘crossover’, Bocelli is able to keep his classical and pop repertories separate, excelling at both as distinct disciplines. The biggest selling solo classical artist of all time, Bocelli has performed for four U.S. presidents, two popes and the royal family, as well as at ceremonies for the Olympic Games and the World Cup. He has been praised by such luminaries as Luciano Pavarotti, Franco Corelli, Zubin Mehta, Jose Carreras, Lorin Maazel, Renee Fleming and Celine Dion, who once introduced him by saying: “I heard someone say that if God had a singing voice, he would sound a lot like Andrea Bocelli.” He has sold over 80 million albums around the world, his 1999 Sacred Arias album has sold over 5 million copies, making it the best selling classical recording of all time.  His pop career, including the much loved Time To Say Goodbye, a duet with Sarah Brightman that reached Number 1 in charts around the world in 1998, may have drawn millions in, but Bocelli has always enthusiastically shared his classical calling. Bocelli brings both that intimacy and the grandeur of operatic masterpieces to UK and Ireland Arenas with Lindsey Stirling making this a night of musical celebration.

Love in Portofino

Per il suo nuovo disco, omaggio all’amore e alla passione dal titolo fino all’ultimo brano, Andrea ha scelto una selezione che coinvolge sei idiomi differenti… Per la prossima, attesissima produzione pop che le due serate a Portofino hanno catturato in uno “special” e anticipato ai presenti, per poi trasmetterle in occasione di “San Valentino” 2013, Bocelli canta in francese e italiano, in dialetto napoletano e in lingua portoghese, in inglese e spagnolo. Perché d’amore si parla e si canta, a ogni lato del mondo. In lista, sia capolavori di cui chiunque saprebbe replicarne il motivo, e se chiedi quali le canzoni più note di sempre, in graduatoria li troveresti puntualmente citati. Sia brani che hanno già incantato, negli anni, l’uditorio italiano, senza avere avuto (fino ad oggi) un trampolino internazionale adeguato, che ne proponga la loro bellezza per ogni dove. La selezione non segue astuzie di mercato, quanto piuttosto il criterio del gusto personale di Andrea. Un gusto che si sposa fatalmente, fin dagli anni ’90, con le scelte del pubblico, e corrisponde a ciò che vorremmo ascoltare. Leggi il reportage completo

“Concerto del cuore”: Teatro Grande di Brescia

L’illuminazione della sala infiamma l’oro delle decorazioni che campeggiano, su un fondo avorio, nei cinque ordini di loggiati. Ci sono putti, profili maschili e femminili, tralci, strumenti musicali, allegorie… 

Anche l’interno dei palchi (da uno dei quali seguiamo il concerto), è imbevuto di un avvolgente, caldo color rosso granata, che dilaga nelle poltrone della platea e per l’intera statura del sipario: un panneggio gigante che compendia, nei ricami e nelle frange dorate, l’opulenza cromatica di questa sala che ci accoglie, con i suoi duecento anni, di questo teatro – il “Grande” di Brescia – che ne ha trecento. Tutto è crepitante, è una gragnuola di riflessi smaglianti, è fuoco che non arde eppure infiamma. Come il clima d’attesa, per questo “Concerto del cuore”. Come la voce di Andrea. Come le parole del nostro imprevisto interlocutore, col quale condividiamo il palchetto.

Il “Campano d’oro”: L’università di Pisa celebra l’avvocato Andrea Bocelli

Il 13 settembre 2012 a Pisa, presso la Chiesa dei Cavalieri di Santo Stefano, alla presenza delle maggiori autorità istituzionali della città, Andrea Bocelli ha ricevuto un importante riconoscimento dalla sua terra: è stato insignito del “Campano d’oro”, premio riservato a personalità di chiara fama internazionale che si sono laureate nell’Ateneo della città toscana.

Il “Campano d’oro” è stato istituito nel 1971 e annovera – tra gli illustri premiati delle scorse edizioni – l’ex presidente della Repubblica italiana, Carlo Azeglio Ciampi, ed il premio Nobel per la Fisica, Carlo Rubbia. 

Andrea è stato premiato non solo per i suoi successi mondiali nel campo della musica, ma anche “per l’eccellenza dell’animo che affianca e completa l’eccellenza nella professione”, per il suo costante impegno contro le povertà e a favore della ricerca medico-scientifica. Un impegno testimoniato dal suo sostegno alla Fondazione “Arpa”, dalla recente nascita della “Andrea Bocelli Foundation” e dal legame che ha sempre coltivato con l’Università ed il territorio toscano. Al punto da essere, oggi, il laureato pisano più conosciuto al mondo. Leggi il reportage completo

Inno al Paradiso: Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore

Oltre la Porta

Grazie alla musica, talvolta sembra persino possa essere aperta, idealmente da una chiave di violino. La verità è diversa, però: la porta del Paradiso resta serrata, in attesa, nel suo splendore, tra gli stipiti della nostra coscienza.

Inutile forzarne la serratura. Il luogo che promette di svelare, che racchiude (e che ci schiuderà, prima o poi), fa a meno del fardello del tempo: ogni nostro tentativo di raccontarne i fiori eterni, di rappresentare quel giardino oltre la porta, risulta vano ed ingenuo. Perché al tempo, a quella pesante corda intrecciata, ci aggrappiamo dal primo respiro, mentre il Paradiso chiede mani libere. Noi, qui, a industriarci a prefigurarlo, mentre il Paradiso è altro di certo, poiché non soggetto allo spazio-tempo, al palcoscenico dei fenomeni. Sicché ci attardiamo, sulla soglia. Condizione, già questa, tutt’altro che esente da impedimenti: da bambini la distinguevamo con chiarezza; crescendo, via via, sempre di meno. E nella fatica di quel tratto che ci vede afferrati alla corda, proviamo a sorvegliarne le ante, a illuminarne i contorni, a figurarci i materiali e i decori. Cosicché, quando sarà il momento, riconoscendola, potremo senza tergiversare varcarla. Leggi il reportage completo
