60th Macerata Opera Festival 2024
Homage to Giacomo Puccini with Turandot and La bohème
Tickets on sale from Tuesday 19 December in Macerata and online.
The Macerata Opera Festival 2024 from 19 July to 11 August at the Sferisterio, homage to Giacomo Puccini with Turandot and La bohème and celebration for the 60 seasons with Norma by Vincenzo Bellini. Dance returns with Notte Morricone by Marcos Morau with the Fondazione Nazionale della Danza / Aterballetto, a gala concert and Carmina burana. Among the artists on the poster are Francesco Ivan Ciampa, Fabrizio Maria Carminati, Valerio Galli, the sopranos Ruth Iniesta, Roberta Mantegna, Mariangela Sicilia and Marta Torbidoni, the tenors Yusif Eyvazov, Antonio Poli and Angelo Villari, the baritones Mario Cassi and Lodovico Filippo Ravizza.

The productions are signed by directors Paco Azorín, Maria Mauti and Leo Muscato.

“…and here we have the Moon close by…” this verse from Puccini's Bohème traces the programmatic line chosen by the superintendent Flavio Cavalli and the new artistic director Paolo Gavazzeni for the Macerata Opera Festival, from 19 July to 11 August 2024 at the Sferisterio: Turandot and La bohème by Giacomo Puccini, Norma by Vincenzo Bellini, three masterpieces from the repertoire, two of which by the Tuscan composer on the centenary of his death; the third title is instead linked to the significant milestone of 60 opera seasons in the iconic monument of Macerata, which over the years has become a summer musical event not to be missed but above all an opportunity of absolute value for the city and for all of the Marche region.

Again the Moon - which illuminates the public on summer evenings at the Sferisterio, offers a unique experience of outdoor music, linked to the perfect natural acoustics of the place - significantly crosses the verses and the setting of the three works: a fairy-tale Luna d' East shines on Puccini's unfinished masterpiece; the same silvery light is reflected on the faces of Rodolfo and Mimì; Bellini's priestess addresses the Moon.
