Chorus Teatro Regio Torino

Chorus of the Teatro RegioFounded at the end of the 19th century and re-established in 1945 after the Second World War, the Chorus of the Teatro Regio is one of the most important opera choruses in Europe. Under the direction of maestro Bruno Casoni (1994-2002) it reached the highest international level as demonstrated by the performance of Otello by Verdi under the direction of Claudio Abbado and by the esteem of Semyon Bychkov, who, after conducting it in 2002 in the B-minor Mass by Bach, invited it to Cologne to record Verdi’s Requiem and returns in 2012 to involve it in a concert of Brahms with the Rai National Symphony Orchestra.

The Chorus was later directed by maestro Roberto Gabbiani, who fostered its artistic development even further, while in November 2010 the position was assigned to Claudio Fenoglio who in February 2018 passed the baton to Andrea Secchi.

Engaged in the productions of the Opera Season, the Chorus also carries out important concert activity, both opera-symphonic and “a cappella”, and participates in numerous recordings, including the recent Boris Godunov by Mussorgsky, Un ballo in maschera,Vespri siciliani and the Quattro pezzi sacri by Verdi, Magnificat and Salmo IX di Petrassi with the Orchestra of the Regio conducted by Gianandrea Noseda.

The Chorus took part in numerous tours of the Teatro Regio all over Europe (from 2008) and in both Eastern tours (China and Japan in 2010, Tokyo in 2013) and in North America (2014). In 2016 took part to important international events which have seen the Theatre as guest of honour at the 44th Hong Kong Festival with Simon Boccanegra, two concerts and Requiem Mass by Verdi. It has then triumphed in Paris and in Essen with Lucia di Lammermoor, main singer Diana Damrau, at the prestigious Savonlinna Opera Festival with two productions of La bohème and Norma and, finally, in 2018, at the Saint Petersburg White Nights Festival, performing the Four Sacred Pieces and choral pieces from Verdi's operas together with the Mariinskij Theatre Orchestra.
