This summer the Teatro Regio will be the protagonist of an important tour of Japan and China, where it is the only Italian opera company to be invited to the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, thus setting in motion one of the most prestigious events of the Regio’s long artistic history.
Taking opera to Tokyo and Yokohama is surely a sign of the artistic maturity that the Regio has attained in recent years and which has grown with the presence of Music Director Gianandrea Noseda, an impetuous and captivating spirit for all the artistic forces.
In Japan, at the Bunka Kaikan of Tokyo – one of the most important concert halls in the country – we will stage our new production of La Traviata (23, 26, 29 July and 1 August). The protagonists in Verdi’s opera will be two authentic stars: Natalie Dessay and Matthew Polenzani.
