An Italian opera festival prudently resumes

The Valle d’Itria Festival says it will take place in modified form from 14 July to 2 August in the Apulia town of Martina Franca.

The programme includes two Strauss operas in the open air – Ariadne auf Naxos and Le bourgeois gentilhomme –

The music director is Fabio Luisi.

    no problem for a modified form, this programming is audience poison anyway, come back celetti and segalini

    Hello Ed, and thanks for this encouraging bit of news! That festival is a major one of the Euro Summer Festivals. Ariadne auf Naxos is an opera and sometimes performed with the other piece which is actually a short play with music.
    Ariadne is one of my big favorites.
    So it sounds like you and Jim are doing well. Glad to hear that. Cheers!
