Having dazzled the audience at the performance of Agrippina at the Turku Music Festival this past summer, countertenor Franco Fagioli returns to Turku with the Basel Chamber Orchestra and a programme of Mozart arias originally written for castrati. The concert is held on the same weekend as the Turku Book Fair and the Food and Wine Fair. One of the world’s most sought-after countertenors, Fagioli charmed the Finnish audience as Emperor Nero in Handel’s opera Agrippina in the head start of the Turku Music Festival last summer.
