Teatro Grande Foundation announces the upcoming events realized by OperaLombardia Circuit. After the successful streaming of Werther by Jules Massenet, a new Opera is about to be represented.
From Teatro Sociale di Como Zaide by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart will be on screen on 20th Friday 2020 at 17.00 on www.operalombardialive.it and the Mediaportal of Regione Lombardia.
A co-production by Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and OperaLombardia Theatres, Zaide is an unfinished Singspiel inspired to the tragedy Zaira by Voltaire, with music by Mozart. The opera is presented for the first time at Como with a rare execution that will resume a dramaturgy written by Italo Calvino in 1981. Direction by Graham Vick, scenes and costumes by Italo Grassi, lights by Giseppe Di Iorio, the Orchestra I Pomeriggi Musicali di Milano will be conducted by Alessandro Palumbo.
Zaide will be depicted in German on original libretto by Johann Andreas Schachtner with Italian subtitles. As the opera is scheduled at Teatro Grande on 10th and 12th December, the live streaming on 20th November is a special preview.
The entire project has the patronage and support of Regione Lombardia. Moreover, OperaLombardia Circuit features support of MIBACT and Fondazione Cariplo.
