The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra's New Year's Eve Concert in 2000 set the mood for the centenary of Giuseppe Verdi's (1813-1901) death with a selection of the composer's most popular tunes. The orchestra presented excerpts from Rigoletto, La Traviata, Un ballo in maschera and Falstaff. The programme also included the ball scene from act III of Don Carlo – a scene that is seldom staged. With singers Andrea Rost, Ramon Vargas, Alan Titus and Lucio Gallo, a cast of internationally celebrated Verdi singers gathered for this Gala Evening led by maestro Claudio Abbado. The outstanding Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and the virtuoso Prague Radio Choir provided music of the highest order on this very special evening.
