FESTIVAL VERDI 2016

Tradition, a desire to embrace the new and ever increasing internationality are the predominant features of the 2016 edition of the Festival Verdi (Parma and Busseto, 1-30 October, www.festivalverdi.it) which is dedicated to the German poet and playwright Friedrich Schiller, who was always a source of inspiration and subject matter for Italian composers and Giuseppe Verdi above all.

The 2016 edition of Festival Verdi will be hosted in places of great fascination and history: the Teatro Regio di Parma, the Teatro Giuseppe Verdi in Busseto and the extraordinary Teatro Farnese in Parma.

There are four operas in the programme, Don Carlo, Giovanna d’Arco, I masnadieri and Il Trovatore; three of these are new productions which have as protagonists, amongst others, Saskia Boddeke and Peter Greenaway, Daniel Oren, Massimo Zanetti, the Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini, James Conlon and the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai. AroundVerdi is a series of manifestations on the fringe with five Festival commissions presented here for the first time with performances by artists of the calibre of Vinicio Capossela, Uri Caine Ensemble and Ugo Pagliai.
