The Ceremony from the Sala Grande of the Palazzo del Cinema will be awarding the Golden Lion for Best Film, along with other notable awards, with a live broadcast starting 7 p.m. on Rai Movie along with live streaming available on LA BIENNALE’s Official website and social media.
The closing act of this prestigious event will be HAUSER, world renowned cellist, months before beginning his 2023 world tour as “HAUSER – The Rebel with a Cello.” This will be the artist’s first solo world tour after years of touring as one half of the duo 2CELLOS.
HAUSER was born in Pula, Croatia, on June 15, 1986. He began his musical education in his hometown of Pula where he was a true child of the arts, along with his musically talented family. HAUSER attended and graduated in Rijeka, completing his university studies in London with Natalia Pavlutskay. He then continued his studies with Ralph Kirshbaum in Manchester, concluding them in the United States with U.S. cellist Bernard Greenhouse. During HAUSER’s time studying in London, he became a permanent member of the Greenwich Trio as their official cellist.
At just 20 years old, HAUSER performed, as a soloist, in some of the most historic theaters across Europe, Asia, South Africa, New Zealand, and the United States. His debuts have taken place in prestigious venues such as London’s Wigmore Hall, the Royal Albert Hall, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and the South Bank Centre. HAUSER has been distinguished with numerous international awards in the United Kingdom. Despite his young age, he has had the honor to perform for Chalres, Prince of Wales at both Buckingham Palace, as well as at St. James’s Palace.
