2021 preview: Grande Notte del Jazz and Festa dell’Opera

Fondazione del Teatro Grande di Brescia announces 2021 dates of two great events, become reference points of the artistic schedule, not only of the Theatre but also of the cultural offer of the city.

On Saturday 5th June the Fourth edition of Grande Notte del Jazz is planned. The popular no-stop dedicated to jazz music and its countless facets is back. As previous editions artists from several music scenes will be protagonists: mainly exponents of Italian jazz will propose original and suggestive listenings. This will be an opportunity for getting involved in traditional sounds approached to sperimentation. The total immersion in jazz music will give life to an unmissable nocturnal marathon. Beyond the concerts deeping and proposals for young people will be part of the event.

2021 coincides with ten-year edition of Festa dell’Opera. To celebrate this important milestone Fondazione del Teatro Grande decided to extend the Festa on three days, from Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th. The rich programme will cross several places of the city and it will be communicated as usual in the weeks before the event. Its main vocation is still to open and to bring people closer to Opera, both lovers and beginners of every age. Through contamination between music languages (jazz, electronics, swing, pop, rock, contemporary music), meetings and dedicated events for children, Festa dell’Opera 2021 will hace a stronger effect on the city, by touching most symbolic places and by opening the doors of precious buildings usually not accessible. The Festa dell’Opera’s spirit of sociality and joy will remain intact: many places will be involved, both public and private, out and in-door, to promote through music the extraordinary historic and architectural heritage of the city. Once more Festa dell’Opera will conquer everyone to indulge warmth and consent of tons of people. In 2021 partnerships with the urban tissue will increase in terms of arts, accomodation and sociality, to spread the magic of Opera in every contexts.

As made for the perfomances planned in 2020 Season, also the formats of Festa dell’Opera and Grande Notte del Jazz has been rethought to adapt to the new social enviroment following the pandemic. We decided to move the events in summer season and to extend the artistic offer with the aim of giving to the audience the opportunity to live the charm of Opera and the most interesting jazz sounds. The performances will take place in security and in accordance to limits as enforced by Authorities: sanitization, assigned and restricted seats, ban on gatherings, social distance and dpi use.
