The Women of Africa association presents classical singers from the African continent, from opera arias to traditional songs
A very special, innovative and unprecedented evening, with proceeds going to projects run by the Women of Africa association to support young classical singers and build a conservatoire in Africa. All-African singers in a programme that revisits the great opera classics, ranging from Italian, German and French opera arias to African songs, and including the most beautiful melodies from the classical repertoire.
