Teatro Regio Torino: Italy in opera

logoregioOn October 9th the Teatro Regio Torino has opened its season which is one of the most interesting and full of unmissable events of recent years. There will be thirteen operas, two ballets, a premiered show and a Gala dedicated to Giuseppe Verdi. On top of such formidable commitment we must still add the tour in Japan; another invitation after the great success in 2010.
The focus will be on the great Italian music, particularly of Verdi and Puccini, which will be dedicated to the two festivals. In parallel, the project will be continued to create a solid repertoire of opera symbol, alternating more and more titles thanks to the historical staging of own production, to offer, in short periods of time, more varied point of views based on the production of the great Masters.
The Verdi Festival, celebrating the 200th anniversary of Verdi’s birth, was opened by Simon Boccanegra conducted by Gianandrea Noseda, in the beautiful setting designed for the Teatro Regio by Sylvano Bussotti. The Festival will thus continue with two of the operas that are not only popular but also paradigmatic, both from a “political” and a “sociological” aspect: Rigoletto and La traviata. The tribute to Giuseppe Verdi will be further enhanced thanks to the premiere of Verdi, narrar cantando, the show by Marco Paolini and Mario Brunello, and a Gala lyric-symphonic with three broad selections from Macbeth, Il Trovatore and Aida with an exceptional cast: Barbara Frittoli, Marcelo Álvarez, Marianne Cornetti e Leo Nucci.
Other central characters of the Italian spirit will be Gioachino Rossini with Il barbiere di Siviglia, and Guglielmo Tell and Giacomo Puccini, with the Festival dedicated to him, where Madama Butterfly, Turandot, Tosca and Gianni Schicchi will be put on stage.

Teatro Regio will then continue its activities and collaboration with Torinodanza Festival, and will host the Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon, with a tribute to two choreographers who have marked the history of the dance of the twentieth century: the American William Forsythe, with Limb’s Theorem, and the Swedish Mats Ek, whose rewriting of Giselle, has created an authentic milestone in contemporary choreography
