The Arena di Verona Opera Festival, staged in the spectacular setting of the Verona amphitheater from 14th June to 5th September 2020, offers culture lovers a feast of sublime music and spectacular performances.
The event has taken place since 1913 when it opened with a performance of Aida. Since then, almost every summer has seen the Roman theatre in Verona transformed into a spellbinding setting for authentic Italian opera. Despite early doubts, the amphitheater has served beautifully as an opera venue, with plenty of viewing angles and excellent acoustics. There can be few more romantic and magical places to enjoy Verdi or Puccini's masterpieces.
Three intense months, five operas, five special events, with soloists from all over the world, including Anna Netrebko, Plácido Domingo, Roberto Alagna, Aleksandra Kurzak, Jusif Eyvazov, along with illustrious supporting singers, who will bring to life Cavalleria Rusticana - Pagliacci, Aida, Turandot, Nabucco, La Traviata.
Plácido Domingo, a true legend of the international opera scenario, is coming back for a special Gala Evening on 7th July, Domingo Opera Night. The star of dance Roberto Bolle and Friends is returning also this year for two dates under the banner of great dance. Lastly, one more special evening will be the prestigious appointment with the symphonic music of Beethoven's The Symphony No. 9, conducted by Ezio Bosso.
