A festival programme that, alongside the three opera masterpieces Il flauto magico, L’Elisir d’amore, and La traviata, and the traditional Night of the Opera, includes complementary events, the return of dance to the Sferisterio, the contemporanea and three thematic parties on stage
Vinicio Capossela, Francesco Micheli with Elio, Max Gazzè, Lella Costa, and Eleonora Abbagnato: these are the stars that will feature in the three operas to be performed from 20 July to 12 August 2018, in Macerata
The 2018 programme for the Macerata Opera Festival, whose main theme is #verdesperanza, has been officially announced. Planned by General Manager Luciano Messi, Artistic Director Barbara Minghetti, and Music Director Francesco Lanzillotta, the 2018 programme is a blend of tradition and innovation. While following the same weekly thematic schedule, it is characterised by new leading figures and ideas. The result is a truly international festival, which also aims to strengthen ties with the local communities, thanks to a wide range of activities throughout the year, such as school visits, which started a few months ago, introductory lectures, and further events that will take place in the coming months, making Macerata “a festive city for its Festival”.
