Montserrat Caballé to perform in Umag on July 23!

Spain’s legendary opera diva Montserrat Caballé is going to make the opening of the 22nd ATP Studena Croatia Open an even grander occasion by performing at the Stella Maris stadium on July 23.

Thus, the Umag tournament will confirm its status of the central social event this summer in Croatia. It will also perhaps be the last chance to hear one of the most famous soprano singers in musical history in Croatia as her performance in Umag will be part of her farewell world tour, after which in 2013 Montserrat Caballé will no longer perform in public.

La Superba – as Montserrat Caballé is known – will perform in Umag as part of the ATP Umag Party Nights Program, which will last from July 21 until July 31, 2011. Besides top-quality tennis, this year’s 11-day ATP Studena Croatia Open will offer a rich and diverse program featuring music, gastronomic and tourist events.

During her long and impressive career Montserrat Caballé has sung in over eighty opera roles, from baroque opera to Verdi, Wagner, Puccini and Strauss. Her voice is known for its clarity, precision in control, extraordinary power and versatility. With her charismatic personality and human warmth Caballé has been enchanting her audiences around the world for almost five decades. As the UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador, she is also known for her charity work.

Wider audiences probably know Montserrat Caballé best for her duet with the late Queen singer Freddie Mercury, with whom back in 1992 she recorded Barcelona, the hymn of the Olympic Games, which took place that very year in the Catalan capital.
