Il Grande in Provincia – 2023

The Teatro Grande Foundation and the Province of Brescia, with the collaboration of the Brescia Province Events Foundation, present the eighth edition of the Il Grande in Provincia project, the summer music festival that from June 20 to September 18 will take the excellence of the Teatro Grande on a journey through the Brescia area.

The only project that has never been interrupted, not even during the period of the pandemic, Il Grande in Provincia touches historic-artistic heritage places and small villages distant from the main tourist destinations every year to contribute to the enhancement of the territory through music also with a view to cultural tourism and to meet the proximity audience.

In the year in which Brescia stands out for its rich program of activities linked to the Italian Capital of Culture, the festival Il Grande in Provincia also set itself ambitious goals, particularly that of expanding its artistic programming, also involving new municipalities that had never before this year been touched by the initiative.

This led to the definition of a calendar that consists of 23 appointments, all free of charge, starting at 9 p.m. and specific access modes for each location. The review will welcome different musical genres again this year: opera recitals, chamber music concerts, jazz, baroque music, but also some readings that combine music and word for an interesting mixture of styles.


All the events of The Great in the Province review are, as every year, free to attend. Access to the events varies for each municipality, so please consult teatrogrande.it and the websites of the respective administrations, also for alternative venues in case of bad weather.

We thank all the municipalities, parishes and Civil Defense Groups involved, the Mountain Communities of Valle Sabbia, Valle Trompia and Sebino Bresciano, MarteS, Padernello Castle Foundation, Ugo da Como Foundation, Terra della Franciacorta Association, Associazione Comuni delle Terre Basse, Strada del Vino e dei Sapori Colli dei Longobardi, Pro Loco di Bedizzole, Villa Franciacorta, Lombarda Marmi.
