58 performances for 6 titles and 3 Gala nights welcome you at the Arena di Verona for the 91st edition of the Opera Festival, dedicated to the great composer Giuseppe Verdi, on the occasion of the bicentennial of his birth.
The new awaited set design of Aida will inaugurate the Festival. Aida, the opera in the Arena par excellence, will be also displayed in its 1913 Recalling, starting from 10th August. From 15th June, Nabucco will be on stage, together with Verdi's Popular Trilogy, composed by La Traviata, Il Trovatore and Rigoletto. From 31st August, also Roméo et Juliette, a permanent opera of the Arena repertoire, will be on stage.
Then we will enjoy Verdi's music again, with Messa da Requiem, on 13th July. On 17th July, a Gala will be dedicated to the composer from Busseto, with three great conductors who will be protagonists on stage: Andrea Battistoni, Riccardo Frizza and Omer Meir Wellber.
2013 will also be the year of the bicentennial of the German composer Richard Wagner's birth. On 15th August, a Gala will be dedicated to him and to Verdi, starring the young and famous Daniel Harding, who will conduct Plácido Domingo together with the greatest singers of Wagner's repertoire, such as Evelyn Herlitzius, Violeta Urmana, Vitaly Kovaliov, and Verdian singers such as Martina Serafin.
The 20th August Gala, in which the M° Domingo will conduct the winners of the latest editions of the Operalia competition, completes the programme.
