Matteo – A Venitian Christmas

Matteo will be performing tonight the most famous Venitian “Barock” music from Vivaldi in a free concert accessible to all on this special period of the year!

Matteo writes Barock with a “ck” because of his pop – rock touch that he adds to his performances, transforming them into a MAD show. It’s always full of life and surprises!

This concert is in partnership with MAD, Nostalgie, Association Philippe Jabre, Jammal Trust Bank and Reserve Ammiq, with the collaboration of Dany and Philippe Bardawil, be there tonight, the 23rd of December in St Elie Kantari Church at 8.00pm sharp !

Matteo is MAD

Our unique countertenor. Matteo is the only countertenor in the Middle East and one of the 63 in the world! His truly rare voice is a type of classical male singing voice whose vocal range is equivalent to that of the female.

He has previously released his first album “Matteo Haute-Contre”, a “Thank You” album to all the inspirations who led him to fulfill his destiny: Bach, Bellini, Vivaldi, Purcell, Verdi … and performed on many stages around the world!

When Matteo is not performing he is constantly searching for Lebanon’s hidden architectural gems, which is also a source of inspiration for him. His on stage presence and performance are as impressive as his good mood, positive vibes and laughter that are madly contagious!

Check out his MAD story and see him perform live this Friday December 23rd at St Elie Kantari Church, Beirut at 8:00pm !
