Musical Weeks Festival at the Teatro Olimpico
XXII edition 31 May-23 June 2013
The Musical Weeks at the Teatro Olimpico were first organised in 1992 with the intention of bring great classical music to one of the most fabulous settings in the world, the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, designed by Andrea Palladio in 1580 and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Created and conducted since the first edition by Maestro Giovanni Battista Rigon, conductor and pianist, the programme includes symphony concerts and chamber music, meetings with musicians, composers and music critics. It also offers young talents the chance to perform in the Progetto Giovani (Youth Project).
In 2004, the artistic management body decided to bring back traditional opera to the Olimpico stage - The Magic Flute, Don Giovanni, The Barber of Seville - putting on special versions for the first time set in the modern era.
This year the choice is The Marriage of Figaro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, an opera set in Seville.
This twenty-second edition of the Musical Weeks is therefore entitled Mozart e la Spagna (Mozart and Spain).
The Musical Weeks at the Teatro Olimpico are part of the huge European Festivals Association (EFA), which includes the BBC Proms, Lucerne Festival, Berliner Festspiele, ZurcherFestspiele, Prague Spring Festival and, in Italy, the ROF in Pesaro, Ravenna Festival, Merano and Stresa Festivals and the MiTo Settembre Musica.
Gustalopera is the after-the-theatre gourmet appointment during the Musical Weeks at the Teatro Olimpico. Returning to coincide with the musical events from 31 May to 23 June is Gustalopera, the foodie must-visit for the Musical Weeks.
This is the twenty-second Musical Weeks Festival and once again this year, it brings the theatre-going public a chance to enjoy an extraordinary experience.
Every evening, after the concerts and operas on the programme at the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, the garden of the theatre will host a buffet dinner, reserved for the Musical Weeks performers and their audience.
Down from the stage, the musicians and opera singers will end the evening by savouring with you the special menus thought up for the occasion.
Cost of dinner: 20 euro per person.
