Last week, international opera star Jose Carreras announced his retirement from opera. Did you know he appeared with the Florentine Opera in a special concert in 1995?
In fact, all three of the famed tenors have graced the Florentine stage. In honor of our upcoming 75th Anniversary Concert & Celebration, here’s a blast from the past, Tenor-style.
