20th Festival Verdi - “Sparks of Opera”

On June, 8th, video press conference to present the new program. Live streaming on the Teatro Regio di Parma Facebook page

The Teatro Regio di Parma is resolutely working on “Sparks of Opera”, the new program of the Festival Verdi which this year celebrates its twentieth anniversary in Parma and Busseto.

On Monday June 8th, 2020 at 11:30 am, the program will be announced in a video press conference in live streaming on the Theatre’s Facebook page, in the presence of:

  • Federico Pizzarotti, Mayor of Parma and President of the Teatro Regio
  • Anna Maria Meo, General Manager of the Teatro Regio and Artistic Director of the Festival Verdi
  • Barbara Minghetti, Project Manager of Verdi Off
  • Michele Guerra, Councillor for Culture of the Comune di Parma.

Unable to stage the works previously announced due to public health regulations, the Festival will bring them to life by other means and in different places.
Verdi’s great music will cancel the distances, multiply and expand the spaces, crossing theatres boundaries to irradiate its enthusiasm all over the city, resonating in the streets, vibrating in the parks and squares of Parma and Busseto, animating courtyards and neighbourhoods, in the city’s suburbs as well as in its centre, also embracing the guests of places of care and hospitals as well as prisoners.

In such troubling times for both life and art, the Festival Verdi wishes to celebrate its twentieth anniversary in this way and, with the audacity and enthusiasm of its youth, it won’t stop.
