The first competition for the stage direction, sets and costumes ofRigoletto
For the first time, Teatro Regio announces a competition for the creation of the stage direction, sets, costumes and lighting of one of the world’s most popular operas: Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi.
The Regio has certainly demonstrated great interest in creativity in recent years, regularly inviting those directors who, with their work, are leaving their mark on the international scene. With this initiative, the Regio intends to go further in order to discover that which is still unfamiliar, and, at the same time, give the opportunity for those who haven’t yet established themselves to demonstrate their talent.
The best idea, i.e. the project which best utilizes the 200,000 euros made available for the realisation of the staging – inclusive of costumes, accessories, props and lighting – will be performed in the next Opera Season at the Regio, and will become part of the repertoire that the Regio also takes, with great success, on tour around the region.
Definitely an opportunity not to be missed for all those who feel they are ready to face a challenge involving in primis the Regio, and that, we hope, can contribute to developing new points of view and generate new cultural debate.
