Macerata Opera

Walls and Divisions is the theme chosen for this amazing opera festival. Unique of its kind thanks to the venue in which it takes place: the 18th-century “Sferisterio”, a long, oval-shaped arena that was originally built as a playground for the game of the ball and the bangle. The unusual open-air theatre provides a challenging setting for stage directors who have turned it into a temple for opera, and in past years created a couple of really legendary productions. The theme, that aims to break down barriers thanks also to a special project for the visually impaired, includes a tributes to Verdi and Britten in this anniversary year with Nabucco and Trovatore and Britten’s children’s opera The Little Sweep.
