Andrea Bocelli to be celebrated in Grammy Museum exhibit
People looking forward to next year's Andrea Bocelli tour may be interested to know the Tuscan tenor's career is being celebrated at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.
The exhibit will open on December 8th and features what the organisers described as "rare artefacts" from the singer's "personal collection", such as his flute, his costume for Madama Butterfly and a vinyl copy of Franco Corelli, Maria Callas and Giuseppe Di Stefano's Cavalleria Rusticana.
Andrea Bocelli: Story of a Voice has been created by the museum in partnership with Studiomusica USA and will be held on the fourth floor of the establishment until February 12th 2012.
The star himself will attend a ceremony at the institution on December 9th, where he will launch his new charity the Andrea Bocelli Foundation, which he described on his blog as existing to "nurture the dream of creating a world that is a little more peaceful than the one we found".
Individuals who will not be able to make it over to the museum to see the exhibition need not feel left out, as Andrea Bocelli tickets to see the tenor live in the UK next year went on sale this morning.
