A small town in Italy reopens its 18th century opera housemain
Lugo, a stopover between Bologna and Ravenna, has a gorgeous little theatre built by Antonio Galli Bibiena.
The town has just hired Rinaldo Alessandrini to put on a music festival, and he has teamed up with former La Monnaie exec Valerio Tura to trawl in some talent.
The pair have some fascinating chamber operas in mind for next December.
Just look at this little gem of a Teatro Rossini.
