Bel Canto is considered the maximum expression of human voice. The Italian term was coined in the 18th century and is still today taught in a similar way as in the past. This vocal technique emphasizes the beauty of sound and the technical capacity of the artist, instead of the dramatic expression or romantic emotion.
Admission is free.
Don’t miss it!
For Macau, Further and Higher!
