1. Accademia Teatro alla Scala | Don Pasquale (G.Donizetti)


    from Andrea Angeli / Added

    Sarcasmi e intrighi ai danni di Don Pasquale, ricco scapolo settantenne che vuole a tutti i costi far sposare il nipote, innamorato della giovane Norina, con una nobile e facoltosa “zitella”. Nella irresistibile commedia di Donizetti non manca una sottile vena sentimentale e di saggezza popolare tinta di rosa: “Il marito vede e tace,/quando parla non s’ascolta”. Lo spettacolo viene dal Maggio Musicale Fiorentino ed è firmato da Jonathan Miller, figura poliedrica del teatro anglosassone: regista, scrittore, comico, attore, presentatore, scultore e medico. Una regia fresca e brillante per l’annuale spettacolo dell’Accademia della Scala, nel quale tutti gli allievi si mettono alla prova per presentare al pubblico un prodotto all’altezza degli spettacoli che calcano il palcoscenico scaligero.

                    Treasure is found in the most unlikely places…. For sixty years now many hundreds of thousands of people have made a pilgrimage to Wexford Festival Opera in search of buried operatic treasure. Wexford is a charming seaside town on Ireland’s southeast coast and since 1951 this town has hosted what has become known as one of the world’s most remarkable festivals. Wexford Festival Opera prides itself in giving new life to unjustly neglected operas, introducing artists and audiences to the forgotten masterpieces. And it does this in high quality productions which annually delight both critics and audiences alike. But far from being satisfied with presenting three productions each year, also on offer is a packed programme of morning events, lunchtime concerts, afternoon ShortWorks and recitals and late night revues. As if this wasn’t enough, a vibrant Fringe Festival offers everything from art exhibitions through to singing and swinging pubs And throughout all this, there is the remarkable camaraderie engendered by the warmth and intimacy of Wexford town itself. From the brand new Wexford Opera House seating just over 770, the 350 strong volunteer corps ready to welcome you to Wexford, to the hotels, bars and restaurants along the High, Main, and side streets of this Viking town, Wexford is a town which is truly taken over by the Festival. There’s something in the air that quickens everyone’s pulse – a common heartbeat of expansive good feeling and heightened sensibility that brings people back to Wexford again and again. The Wexford Festival Opera has been running since 1951, playing a central role in the cultural life of Ireland, in the world of Opera and Arts internationally. From small and humble beginnings it has achieved world-wide success and critical acclaim by demonstrating passion, innovation and a willingness to lead audiences and artists into neglected territories to explore the rich vein of operatic work worldwide.
