Opera and Ballet Season 2011-2012

Opera and Love

Ten operas, six great classical ballets with the Ballet of the Mariinsky Theatre of St Petersburg, and, before the inauguration of the Season, an homage to Beethoven with his Nine Symphonies conducted by  Gianandrea Noseda.

A season that revolves, metaphorically, around the theme of love, not only the kind that opera and dance have described for centuries in its infinite nuances, but also the love of those who, with passion, work in opera or come to see it.

On stage at the Regio, it will be possible then to go from the enchanted atmosphere of Swan Lake to the sensual exoticism of Shéhérazade, from the structures of eros in Così fan tutte by Mozart to the fibre of marital ties in Beethoven’s Fidelio, from the daring artifices in Rossini’s Barber of Seville to maternal love in Norma by Bellini and  paternal love in Rigoletto, from the machinations in The Masked Ball by Verdi to the “joyous and terrible” love in La bohème of Puccini, who then with Tosca e Madama Butterfly manages, like no-one else, to delve into human passions. All of this finishing with the diabolic sensual pleasure of Prokofiev’s The Fiery Angel.

From 28 September to 6 October, Music Director Gianandrea Noseda will be on the podium of the Orchestra and Chorus of the Regio for performances of the complete Nine Symphonies of Ludwig van Beethoven, divided into four double concerts.
