An Aria A Day #55

SILVIA COLLOCA
'O del mio Dolce Ardor'
from 'Paris and Helen'
by Christoph Willibald Gluck
Piano Michael Leonardi

2nd July, 2020

You may already know Silvia Colloca as an actor, cookbook author and TV presenter. She is also a professional opera singer. For An Aria A Day, Silvia performs Gluck’s tender ‘O del mio Dolce Ardor’, an aria from the first act of ‘Paris and Helen’.

While the aria is often performed in concerts and recital, the rarely performed opera follows on from ‘Alceste’ and ‘Orfeo ed Euridice’ as the third of Gluck’s ‘reform’ operas.
