From the north to the south, traverse Italy for peerless operatic performances in the country that can claim to have invented the art form.
Begin at Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, with performances of Verdi’s lyric opera Ernani, and Mozart’s youthful, comic La finta giardinera. Then continue to Parma’s annual Verdi Festival for sumptuous operatic performances of works by the father of grand opera, before travelling onwards to other major centres of opera, tentatively including Turin, Naples and/or Palermo (pending performance schedules, still to be announced).
In addition to glorious nights at the opera, savour the passionate abundance of Italian life: art, architecture, fashion, shopping, food and fine wine. La vita bella – e l’opera bellissima!
