On stage Orchestra and Chorus of the San Carlo Theater, the latter prepared by José Luis Basso, and the American soprano Lauren Michelle, at the Neapolitan debut.

The program chosen by the Slovak director for "his" ensembles - Valčuha has been in the musical direction of the Neapolitan Opera since 2016 - opens with a classic of the festive period, the Suite n. 1 op. 107 that Sergej Prokofiev drew from his ballet Cinderella (1945).

Central piece on the poster, the orchestral version of the suite But mère l'oye (1912) of Maurice Ravel, also conceived as a ballet.
