The 2018 theme is #verdesperanza.
The main issues threaded into our next summer festival are connected with a green, clean environment and sustainability, with planting the seeds of a better future through the art of hope. Our aim is to build strong ties with other bodies and institutions working on these issues, building a dialogue on sustainability and bringing together culture, nature and the community.
All three operas on stage will recall the four natural elements: water, air, earth and fire. These timeless masterpieces will be re-interpreted in close connection with today’s world: the initiatory trials of Tamino and Pamina in Flauto Magico, along with Graham Vick‘s own reading, the earth (sand) and water (sea) of Michieletto‘s Elisir d’Amore, the liquid mirrors of the historic Traviata of the mirrors (Henning Brockhaus), along with the air, or aria, which is so intrinsically part of all operas.
