Opera and Ballet Season 2009-2010

L'Opera vincerà

Eleven titles, six new stagings – five of which are co-productions with important Italian and foreign opera theatres –, great ballet with The Nutcracker, closer ties with  the Teatro Stabile and an important tour in Japan and China: this is the new Regio season, the clearest demonstration of the capacity and desire of the Theatre to invest, a concrete response to a crisis that has brought about, in Italy, an unprecedented drop in public and private contributions, forcing many theatres to drastically reduce their performances. 

Convinced of the unavoidable importance of music in the cultural patrimony of Italy, we believe that the cornerstone of our commitment is the public, whom we ask to continue actively supporting us in order to maintain our high level of quality which is internationally recognised, as is demonstrated by the presence of our productions in the most prestigious theatres of the Far East.

The other important element in the life of the theatre is the continuous presence of the Members of the Foundation, and in particular, the generous commitment of the Compagnia di San Paolo, Fondazione CRT and Gruppo Fondiaria SAI, which will  sponsor the inaugural evening for the sixth consecutive year.
