Carly Paoli, who was described as having “the voice of an angel” by Pope Francis, has become known for her romantic, lyric driven performances of a diverse range of music; from ‘Bel Canto’ opera arias to musical theatre, from classical to contemporary.

Having performed numerous times for King Charles lll and Queen Camilla as well as other members of the royal family, Carly has released five critically acclaimed albums earning her a classical Brit nomination, including the album Carly Paoli & Friends, featuring a series of duets with Elaine Paige, Tony Hadley, Aled Jones and Joseph Calleja.

“I feel a connection with FOPE in the sense that like myself, it’s a brand that is proud of its Italian roots and strives to showcase beautiful artistry on an international level,” Carly said.

“The foundation of the FOPE brand is built on decades of tradition working with the finest craftspeople to create timeless pieces and blending this with new technology to create unique flexible gold pieces. Music and the art of singing Bel Canto is based on that too: it’s studying the art of yesterday that has inspired us, and yet it is constantly evolving to make it ever more relevant today.”

Carly will be wearing FOPE at her many performances throughout 2024, including tours across the UK and around the globe, with the world’s leading orchestras and artists across classical and musical theatre. FOPE will also be hosting a small number of private, exclusive concerts with Carly for the brand’s VIP clients.

“I love the elegance and versatility of FOPE,” said Carly.

“It is jewellery I can wear all day, every day and yet still stands out as unique statement pieces on a performance stage. I love the effortless elegance of the necklaces on a gown but then the same necklace on a simple black polo creates a statement and the look and feel of quiet luxury.”

“We are delighted to work with Carly Paoli who shares our Italian roots and who appealed to us not because of her growing international profile, her musical talent, beauty and sense of style,” said FOPE’s CMO Marilisa Cazzola.

“We look forward to introducing Carly Paoli to our VIP customers and retail partners in the UK throughout the year over a series of exciting events we are planning.”
