Chorus Teatro Regio Torino
Founded 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.
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, I 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 and in both Eastern tours: China and Japan in 2010, Tokyo in 2013, with different operas and opera-symphonic concerts and will take part in all future international events.
