Opera Bellissima 2019
Join Damien for two weeks of Italian opera, visiting three of the spectacular opera festivals which thrill summertime audiences in the delightful towns of Verona, Torre del Lago and Pesaro.
Begin in Verona, where one of the world’s best-preserved Ancient Roman amphitheatres provides the centrepiece for an extraordinary summer festival of opera and classical music, with opera productions designed by the likes of Franco Zeffirelli and Hugo de Ana.
Continue to the Rossini Opera Festival in the composer’s birthplace of Pesaro, where an energetic collaboration between performers, historians and musicologists brings new dynamism to the great composer’s works.
Conclude in the town of Torre del Lago in Tuscany, where the Puccini Festival presents lavish productions of Puccini’s works in the massive Teatro dei Quattromila (Theatre of Four Thousand), nearby to the villa where the composer created some of his best-loved works.
Enjoy the best seats in the house for sumptuous opera performances, and indulge the palate in fine Italian food and wine in the gastronomic heartland of Italy.
(Performance schedules to be announced in late 2018.)
