Fuoco Obbligato is a chamber ensemble
combining Opera Fuoco’s young singers and its
instrumental soloists, performing repertoire from
the baroque chamber cantata to the 20th century folk song. Whether interpreting arias from opera, oratorio, the passions or Lied, the ensemble explores the subtle discourse between singer and chamber musician. The intertwinings of vocal and instrumental “obbligato” parts, often representing a musical ego and alter-ego, are an expressive medium used by composers from the early 18th century onward.
Fuoco Obbligato gives the company’s young artist program an intimate performance platform to complement the masterclasses and full-scale opera productions.
