Live in Central Park [Revisited] Comes to the Marcus Center

MILWAUKEE, WI (Wednesday, August 16, 2017)- On September 16th , 2011 the Great Lawn of Central Park was filled with 60,000 adoring fans of one the most beloved tenors of all time, Andrea Bocelli. Accompanied by the New York Philharmonic under the direction of the great Alan Gilbert, not even the rains of Hurricane Maria could dampen this spectacular night of music. Joined by some of the biggest stars of both the pop and classical music scenes, the night was bursting with the sounds of Bocelli’s  treasured hits. A “pop culture extravaganza”, Bocelli, along with Celine Dion, Tony Bennet, Chriss Botti, Bryn Terfl (and many others) transformed one of the most remarkable and renowned urban parks into the grandest of Opera houses, the most opulent of theatre venues, and the flashiest of concert arenas, in an evening that exemplified the magic of New York City and the great Central Park concert series.

Join internationally celebrated performers Jonathan Hawkins, Lee Lessack and Heather Lundstedt as they recreate this awe inspiring evening, performing such favorites as, “La Donna Mobile”, “The Prayer”, “Time to Say Goobdye” and “Nessun Dorma”.

Come discover the splendor of “Andre Bocelli Live in Central Park [Revisited]” on Sunday, October 1 at 2:00 pm and 6:30 pm in the Wilson Theater at Vogel Hall. This engagement is sponsored by The Fitz at the Ambassador Hotel.
