The Festa dell’Opera is finally back again, and the Teatro Grande is looking for volunteers for the 2022 edition!

The Festa dell’Opera, scheduled for Saturday 11th of June, is a sophisticated but popular festival that takes young and adult spectators, opera lovers or not, on an evocative journey towards the Opera world, making the entire city of Brescia resonate on the notes of the most renowned melodies of the opera tradition from dawn until midnight.

Here we are at the 11th edition of an event involving hundreds of artists and more than 50 public and private spots in the city. The aim of the Festa is opening the doors of opera to everybody, taking the charm of the melodrama in direct contact with the audience of all ages also thanks to the contamination with other musical languages (jazz, electronic, swing, pop, rock, contemporary music).

Concerts and improvised events will be at the centre of this day. Volunteers and staff will be working together to manage the organization of the events and in support of singers and musicians, making their contribution also to the promotion of the program. A precious occasion to get to know the organizational machine of the Teatro Grande and to help realising this unique event.

Send your application (you have until the 23th of May) at this link.

The chosen group will be summoned in the Teatro on Tuesday, 31st of May, for a briefing with the staff of the Festa.

Take part in this beautiful event and let the Opera take you far away!

In these dramatic and shocking hours, the Fondazione del Teatro Grande of Brescia expresses its solidarity with the Ukrainian artists, cultural institutions and concrete support for the courageous Ukrainian population severely affected by the war.

The Foundation has therefore decided to donate the entire proceeds of the concert with the artists Joshua Bell and Shai Wosner, scheduled for March 23 at the Teatro Grande, to the special Ukraine fund of the Croce Bianca in Brescia for humanitarian purposes.

An exceptionally talented duo of musicians Joshua Bell and Shai Wosner will perform on stage in the Great Hall. Joshua Bell is one of the most acclaimed violinists of his time and has performed with all the most important musical realities in the world. Among other accolades, he received a Grammy Award (2018) and 5 other Grammy nominations, as well as winning the Avery Fisher Prize in 2007. Pianist Shai Wosner has collaborated with the most famous conductors and throughout his career has won the Martin E. Segal Award from Lincoln Center, the Avery Fisher Career Grant and a Borletti-Buitoni Trust.

The program that the duo will propose at the Teatro Grande inlcudes in the first part the execution of the Sonata n. 1 in D major for violin and piano by Franz Schubert and Sonata for violin and piano n. 7 in C minor op. 30 n. 2 by Ludwig van Beethoven. After the intermission, the duo will perform Baal Shem. Three paintings of Cassidic life by Ernest Bloch and the Sonata n. 2 in G major for violin and piano by Maurice Ravel.

In the faint hope of a future of peace, March 23 will be a night addressed to all the citizens of Brescia so that with their presence the clear opposition to this war and the shared closeness to the Ukrainian population prevail.
