ODM (Opera Dance Music) The new music genre combining electronic music, symphonic music and opera.
It is a new format bringing on stage leading artists and a new music genre, mixing the sounds of modern electronic music –house progressive and trance- together with symphonic music and opera.
This multi-genre mix is the result of a careful selection among the most famous arias taken from different operas. The electronic arrangements are composed specifically for each aria, giving life to tracks you can listen and dance to. While the arrangements are being played by the DJ, the orchestra, the pianist and the guitarist join in. The arias are sung by tenor Stefano Gagliardi and soprano Linwei Guo. The protagonists of the project are internationally known artists, who will play live with the orchestra, mainly composed of string instruments –violins, violas, cellos and double basses.
Talented and eclectic pianist Pape Gurioli’s repertoire ranges from pop to jazz, he composed hits and played for several artists such as Jovanotti, Luna Pop, Laura Pausini, Pavarotti & friends and many others.
The arranger and saxophonist Francesco Santucci: many collaborations with artists such as Sting, Gino Vannelli, Ray Charles, C. Connors, Tullio de Piscopo, Chet Baker, Lino Patruno, Chaka Khan, Al Jarreau, Antonella Ruggiero. Fascinated by the new mood of ODM, he decided to make his important contribution by dealing with all orchestral arrangements.
Tenor Stefano Gagliardi –Pavarotti’s pupil- is the male voice of the project. He is currently on tour performing traditional operas in the main European theatres.
Chinese soprano Linwei Guo after spending the beginning of her career performing in China, later moved to Italy, making her debut at Teatro Pergolesi in Jesi.
