DONIZETTI OPERA

The sixth edition of the Donizetti Opera 2020 Festival – with the artistic direction of Francesco Micheli and the musical direction of Riccardo Frizza – has been confirmed and will take place in the period that was originally scheduled, from November 19 to December 6, in Bergamo, “The City of Gaetano Donizetti”. The programme that was announced in February, a few weeks before the outbreak of the pandemic, will be presented almost entirely. Following the restrictions due to the Covid emergency, we had to make some changes to the live show format, so the programme will take place in full compliance with health regulations, according to which the shows and rules will be adapted.

The works of the composer from Bergamo will all be performed at the Donizetti Theatre, which will reopen completely restored. Three of the four titles that were planned have been confirmed – BelisarioMarino FalieroLe nozze in villa – while La fille du régiment is postponed to 2021. The Teatro Sociale will host some recitals and the announced homage to Beethoven with the opera L’amor coniugale by Giovanni Simone Mayr, Donizetti’s master.
