Unfortunately the Arena di Verona Opera Festival 2020 has been cancelled, but the 2021 edition has already been scheduled: from 19th June to 4th September 2021 a new Opera Festival will be staged in the spectacular setting of the Verona amphitheater and it will be opened by Riccardo Muti who will conduct Giuseppe Verdi’s Aida in concert form on two extraordinary evenings: 19th and 22nd June 2021.
Next year three intense months, operas and special events with soloists from all over the world will bring to life Cavalleria Rusticana - Pagliacci, Aida, Turandot, Nabucco, La Traviata, Requiem di Giuseppe Verdi.
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.
However, this summer Arena will not be silent: a special 2020 Summer Festival has been planned and will make this edition historic and unrepeatable. It will be inaugurated on the night of July 25th and great international stars are expected for the month of August, with gala events and symphony concerts, in a new format with an in-the-round (central) stage and reduced seating capacity. Visit the official Arena website to discover more about the programme.
