COVID-19: UPDATES FROM MACERATA OPERA FESTIVAL

MACERATA OPERA FESTIVAL 2020 IS CONFIRMED!

These have been weeks of intense discussion for all international theatres and festivals, involving organizers and artists, and cultural and governmental institutions, concerning the reopening of theatres and the prospect of staging outdoor and indoor shows.

The Board of Directors of Associazione Arena Sferisterio has scrupulously followed the developments of the health crisis and the progressive return to a phase of resuming social activities. Therefore, it has been able to take a step forward in the reshaping of the original programme of the Macerata Opera Festival 2020 #biancocoraggio in accordance with government health and safety regulations.

Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, directed by Davide Livermore, will premiere on Saturday 18 July, followed by performances on 24 July, 2 and 8 August as originally scheduled, with the hope of adding further dates.
