Andrea Bocelli and cellist HAUSER perform a sparkling Times Square duet.

The star Italian tenor is joined by a viral cellist for a very special performance in the heart of Manhattan by two of classical music’s biggest names.

On Friday, two of the music industry’s biggest stars found a moment to duet under the bright lights of New York’s Times Square.

The performance took place ahead of the release of Andrea Bocelli’s film The Journey, which hits theaters in the United States on April 2.

‘Melodramma,’ a song originally from Bocelli’s 2001 album Cieli di Toscana, was performed by the duo. When their musical paths cross, they now perform it together.

Cellist HAUSER, one-half of the hugely popular Croatian duo 2Cellos, has collaborated with the singer in recent years. He also appeared as a soloist in the 2022 film Classic FM Live at the Royal Albert Hall.

As a solo artist, HAUSER has gained notoriety for his social media performances, which frequently feature his instrument in lavish settings.

Watch as two musical forces collided against the iconic Manhattan backdrop. There could not be a better stage for the two.

And because no visit to the Big Apple is complete without a visit to both Times Square and Central Park, Bocelli could not resist a tour on horseback. And it was something that did not escape the notice of the NYPD.

The Italian tenor has performed in many of the world’s great concert halls, venues, and arenas, ranging from the world’s largest football stadiums to a powerful moment of music from a deserted Duomo cathedral in Milan during the depths of 2020’s lockdown.

As Bocelli’s remarkable journey continues, a few more iconic New York locations have been added to that list.
