On Thursday 14th April at 20:00, the Regio will stage, for the first time in Turin, the opera La donna serpente (The snake woman), by Alfredo Casella. The Orchestra and Chorus of the Regio are conducted by Gianandrea Noseda. The opera is directed by Arturo Cirillo. The cast that will bring to life this fabulous opera, inspired by fairies, gnomes and goblins, includes, among others: Piero Pretti, Carmela Remigio, Erika Grimaldi, Francesca Sassu and Sebastian Catana. La donna serpente will be the centrepiece of the Festival Casella, a project made possible by the City of Turin, which, for two weeks, will unite all musical institutions in Turin, the Cinema Museum and the Teatro Stabile. A refined and fascinating cultural journey that, through music, theatre, cinema and meetings, will, for the first time cast light on the multifaceted figure of Alfredo Casella, who was born in Turin in 1883.
