New staging

 

The opening of the Opera and Ballet Season 2023 will be dedicated to a title very dear to the Teatro Grande in Brescia, Madama Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini. In May 1904 in Brescia, after the unexpected fiasco of the Milanese premiere, the new “Bresciana” version of the opera achieved a huge international success and sanctioned the immortality of Puccini’s masterpiece. The show will be a new staging (international co-production by Teatri di Opera Lombardia, Teatro del Giglio di Lucca, Rahvusooper Estonia National Opera of Tallinn) in which will be proposed the second edition of the opera – the one born in Brescia.

Conducting in Brescia one of the most famous Italian wands in the world, that of Maestro Riccardo Frizza, and Maestro Alessandro D’Agostini in tournée, and directed by the renowned Greek director Rodula Gaitanou, as a continuation of that “pink thread” that distinguishes the three opening titles of the three years 2022-2024.
