Muchas gracias a Eleonore, Ingrid y Marion por su colaboración


A long awaited event finally occurred: Rolando Villazón and Dr. Rollo sing - not together but on a same stage!

On the occasion of their 20th anniversary, Red Noses in Vienna organized a colorful and cheerful performance. The event was greeted by the Federal President of Austria.

We had everything for a great evening: Funny clown jokes and other clown humor, humorous scenes, magic tricks, a raffle with valuable prices, beautiful melodies sung by well known artists, among others by Angelika Kirschlager and played by a good orchestra, a huge birthday cake (a red marzipan nose, of course!) and - the stunning, gorgeous voice of Rolando and his captivating stage presence.
He started with an absolutely irresistible "Una Furtiva Lágrima". The voice was warm, sweet, like melted chocolate, with a particularly smooth timbre in the words "furtiva lágrima" and "M'ama! Sì, m'ama, lo vedo". The audience was deeply impressed with the extremely long-held notes that Rolando sang in the final part, "...morir d'amor, d' amor".

After this aria, he shared his thoughts on Red Noses and on their activity, and for congratulating on this 20th anniversary, he sang with soprano Magdalena Anna Hofmann the "Brindisi", accompanied by champagne and humorous moments with the clowns.

At the end of the first part, Rolando cut the huge birthday cake, and all the performers sang "Happy Birthday to you".

In the second part, Rolando conducted the a cappella choir of Red Noses, with great humour and overwhelming facial expressions. 

This second part brought the fulfillment of my dream: To hear Rolando sing "The Impossible Dream". This was the greatest surprise of the evening and was not announced in the programme. I couldn't believe my ears when I heard the first notes. Rolando sang this song with indredible intensity and glowing, his voice was dazzling, glorious. The powerful performance was followed by tempestuous applause.

After a few minutes, Dr. Rollo came on stage and offered us elements of genial humour. Even in the moment when he "sang" some notes to "try" his voice, no one thought that Rolando would face strong competition from him!!! Dr. Rollo sang "Granada" (another one of my musical dreams), and despite my deepest admiration for the art of Rolando, I must sincerely recognize, with great pain, that the singing, the voice, the intense emotional involvement of Dr. Rollo were on the same artistic and human level as those of Rolando!!! The audience too applauded with the same strength and enthusiasm...

The atmosphere was electric. At the end, Dr. Rollo jumped off the stage to interact with the audience.
We had an extraordinary evening, organized for a great and beautiful cause!

Como siempre: GRACIAS, ROLANDO! 

Eleonore

  2. A long awaited event” – as Eleonore said was fantastic. Both of them: excellent voice, excellent stage presence, excellent performance. I don’t know, whether which of the arias and musicals were the best. Fortunately I must not choose between them.

    Thank you Marion and Ingrid for the photos. Thank you Eléonore for the special report.

    Thank you Rolando and dr. Rollo for the excellent evening.
