opera in venice
The words by the journalist Marco Imarisio are very true: “We can close any borders, but we will always have Venice, which belongs to the world, not to us.”
The Carnival in Venice has been interrupted to avoid any health risks due to the current international situation. Therefore, this Mardi Gras in Venice there will be no traditional parades, which took place until last Sunday.
The downtime period does not prevent artistic companies from planning activities for next month in the capital city of Carnival, and there will be many concert-masquerades in Venice in March 2020:
A very special year is starting at the greatest Italian theatres, and the agenda is full of grand classical music concerts and world premieres. There are going to be unmissable dates all around Italy. Firstly, the Scala Opera House in Milan will have its premiere on December 7, as tradition requires, to celebrate the day of Saint Ambrose. This year the first performance is going to be Tosca, presented by the conductor Riccardo Chailly in his cycle of Puccini operas.
