The world level star and owner of one of the most beautiful voices worldwide, Bruno Pelletier, has visited Belarus for the first time, giving a concert in Minsk.
The Canadian singer is known primarily for his brilliant work in the popular Notre Dame de Paris musical, in which he performed the role of poet Gringoire. Although Gringoire wasn’t the major character, Mr. Pelletier managed to create a lasting impression; everyone understood that he was a true world star. The musical premiered in Paris in 1998 and gained a place in the Guinness Book of Records for having the most successful first year of any musical to date.
Mr. Pelletier remains unequalled, despite Notre Dame de Paris being staged in over 20 countries worldwide. At present, his repertoire covers rock, jazz and blues, alongside arias from musical plays. He is also very proud of his son, who is a musician, playing the guitar and having his own band. Mr. Pelletier performs in Italian, Spanish, French and English and has been recently studying the Russian language, planning to sing a song in Russian too.
The singer admits that he felt comfortable in Belarus and especially notes the simplicity and hospitality of our people. He visited the Mount of Glory Memorial Complex, the National Library of Belarus and other famous sites around Minsk.
