The magic flute

A delicate balance between good and evil
A magic opera by Mozart

Teatro Regio, Friday 10th January 2014 at 20:00

Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is a Singspiel full of magic and mystery. The opera will be shown at the Teatro Regio from 10th to 21st January 2014 in fairy tale scenery, directed by Roberto Andò. On the podium of the Orchestra and Chorus of the Teatro Regio is the conductor Christian Arming, an austrian director acclaimed worldwide by audiences for his interpretations of Mozart's pages.

The Magic Flute is an opera of deep contents, almost mystical; however, Roberto Andò has not lost sight of that freshness which Mozart himself thought of, to make his opera light yet suitable for the public. “Mozart - says the director - showed his scientific interests and his love for Egypt in the Magic Flute. Unfortunately, over the years, the focus shifted from it being theatrical to the point of losing sight of the wonderful intersections between popular taste and some aspects of thought. I wanted to keep it simple, bringing back its lightness and elements of surprise, drawing from a theatrical model in keeping singing-actors on stage.”

Verdi Gala


The best of the opera. The best of food

Teatro Regio, Wednesday 18th December at 19:00 and
Sunday 22nd December at 18:00

Two special events to close the year that celebrated the bicentenary of Giuseppe Verdi’s birth. Verdi Gala: on Wednesday 18th December at 19:00 and Sunday 22nd December at 18:00. An event that shows the sum of three intense operas: Macbeth, Il Trovatore e Aida combined with culinary delights of the land of Verdi, offered by Eataly. Opera and food: which proved to be very popular abroad, the Regio is offering this unusual combination for the first time, thanks to the support of the Amici del Regio. Amici del Regio is an association that brings together people who love art, culture and music, and that, a year after its foundation, has decided to cover the soloists’ wages, allowing the proceeds of the two evenings to be allocated to the initiatives that the theatre aims at young people.

The Gala Verdi, also marks the beginning of a collaboration with Eataly, a partnership that embraces the best of music and the best of the earth’s products: two great passions of Giuseppe Verdi, a tribute that would surely have pleased the Master. Giuseppe Giacosa, as a journalist, wrote in 1889: “Verdi is neither a great eater, nor choosy. He is fine at the table like all healthy, wise and sober man, but most of all he loves seeing the happiness around him through his guests. The sincere cheerfulness that accompanies pleasurable and delicious meals: he is a disciplined man, and as such, he believes that every aspect of life should have his moment of prevalence. He is an artist, and rightly considers the meals as a work of art.”

Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon

Limb’s Theorem and Giselle
Two great classics of the contemporary repertoire interpreted by the “corps de ballet” of the Opera of Lyon, for the first time at the Teatro Regio.

Teatro Regio, from 29th November to 7th December 2013

The Ballet de l'Opéra de Lyon begins its European tour in Turin. The Teatro Regio will host the ballet company performing two ballets with strong contemporary twist: Limb's Theorem by William Forsythe with music by Thom Willems (29, 30 November at 20:0 and 1st December at 15:00) and Giselle choreographed by Mats Ek on the famous score by Adolphe-Charles Adam (5, 6 December at 20:00 and on 7th December at 15:00).

The Ballet de l'Opéra de Lyon, a company of classical dancers devoted to contemporary music, is one of the best known dance companies in the world. Its current director, Yorgos Loukos, has worked towards, since the early nineties, the diffusion of contemporary choreographic language, building a repertoire of 93 titles, 48 of which have been specially created for the Ballet de l'Opéra de Lyon. All the greatest choreographers of the twentieth century have collaborated with the French team, enriching it with new aesthetic proposals and strengthening its contemporary identity. Americans talents such as Merce Cunningham, Trisha Brown, Lucinda Childs, Bill T. Jones and the Europeans Jirí Kylián, Sasha Waltz and Philippe Decouflé, just to name a few, have always found in the company Lyonnaise the perfect tool to create and implement their own artistic language.

Gala Verdi: the best of opera and food

2013-2014 Season

Teatro Regio: Italy in opera

The Teatro Regio has never created such a full season as the coming one. There will be thirteen operas, two ballets, a premiered show and a gala dedicated to Giuseppe Verdi. On top of such formidable commitment we must still add the tour in Japan; another invitation after the great success in 2010.
In the 2013-2014 season we focus our attention on the great Italian music, particularly that of Verdi and Puccini to whom we dedicate two festivals.
In parallel, we continue with the project aimed to create a solid repertoire of opera symbol, alternating more and more titles thanks to the historical staging of our production to offer, in short periods of time, more varied point of views based on the production of the great masters.
The curtains will open on 9th October with Verdi's Simon Boccanegra (9/10-23/10) conducted by Gianandrea Noseda, in the beautiful setting designed for the Teatro Regio by Sylvano Bussotti; protagonists of melodrama set in Genoa are: Ambrogio Maestri, María José Siri and Michele Pertusi. Verdi’s Festival will thus continue with two of the operas that are not only popular but also paradigmatic, both from a "political" and a "sociological" aspect: Rigoletto (17th-25th/10) and La traviata (18th-27th/10). Both will be presented in two settings, already part of our repertoire, conducted by Donato Renzetti and Renato Palumbo as well as: Devid Cecconi, Laura Giordano and Piero Pretti for Rigoletto and Irina Lungu, Massimo Giordano and Marco Di Felice for Traviata.
