The ReGeneration Festival presents The Three Divas, a celebration of music as a potent force in an age of uncertainty. One hundred years ago, the Jazz Age took the world by storm. Amidst economic collapse and a global pandemic, jazz became a source of inspiration for many forms of music. In addition, from its early beginnings, jazz musicians embraced diversity and progressive ideals. The Three Divas - Anush Hovhannisyan, Shenel Johns and Veronica Swift -  each from different backgrounds, collaborate across a spectrum of classical and jazz music. From operatic arias, Broadway hits to jazz standards, we celebrate a shared cultural heritage in a concert true to our time. The show also features the brilliant talents of Sam Jewison, Yasushi Nakamura, Dominick Farinacci and Dan Tepfer, in an event co-produced with Piers Playfair, founder of the Catskill Jazz Factory.

Devotion is not a band. It is a musical trinity.

Founded in the recent past, the vocal triumvirate will debut a bewitching set of iconic pop-rock standards. Their unique sound is powered by a raw blend of three unique voices accompanied by a strident instrumental sharpness. And their vision: timeless.

"We are simply envoys," say Devotion, "between a bold new generation and the battle-lines of musical goddesses who came before. Let’s sing."

A quartet from the Maggio Musicale will play at 7pm in the Cortile dell’Ammannati.

"Shakespeare, Guitar and Sonnets" directed by Edoardo Zucchetti will be performed outside of the Boboli Limonaia at 7:30pm.

Entry to the Boboli Gardens will be granted at the main entrance to the Pitti Palace and will be open to audiences from 18:40 each evening for temperature scanning and ticket checks. Entry will not be permitted after 20:00. The food and drinks bar in the courtyard of the Pitti Palace will be open from 19:00. After the evening’s performances have ended, audiences will be ushered to exit the gardens through the Porta Romana access point.
