An opera created and written by Gilberto Gil and Aldo Brizzi, adapted from the 13th century Indian poem the Gita Govinda.
Show recorded on December the 2nd, 2022 in the Radio France Auditorium, with the Radio France Choir and Philharmonic Orchestra.
Universal musician and former Brazilian Minister of Culture, Gilberto Gil performs the world premiere of his opera Amor Azul ("Blue Love”), co-written with Aldo Brizzi, with whom he collaborated in 2005 on his album "Brizzi do Brazil”.
The Radio France choir and orchestra join in the festivities to celebrate the dual heritage of European art music and Brazilian harmony.
This “opera-song” is a moment of jubilation, magic, celebration and irresistible joie de vivre.
