Video of the Day: Lise Davidsen gives a profoundly moving performance of Puccini's aria 'Vissi d'arte'

Friday, July 7, 2023

The famous aria from Puccini's Tosca is performed with intense passion and commitment by Lise Davidsen and James Baillieu

Lise Davidsen is one of the most in-demand singers on the planet, and in today's video she demonstrates clearly why. It's never easy to give a performance at an Awards ceremony, with all manner of distractions and potential disruptions going on around you. So to perform with such power and artistry, as Lise Davidsen and James Baillieu do in this video captured at the The South Bank Sky Arts Awards 2023 last Sunday, is all the more remarkable.
