Valle d’Itria Festival – Martina Franca
13 July-4 August. Opera festival in Apulia.
Valle d’Itria Festival, first organized in 1975 in Martina Franca, is characterized by the re-proposal of underestimated repertoires and musical performances. It takes place from July 13 until August 4, 2018.
Focusing particularly on the 19th Century belcanto opera repertoire and the tradition of the Neapolitan music school, the productions of the festival are distinguished by the authenticity of their texts and by the faithfulness to the original vocal types, respecting the original musical scores and performances.
Since 1975 over 100 operas have been presented at Valle d’Itria festival, which has been awarded seven times the much-acclaimed Premio Abbiati by the Associazione nazionale dei critici musicali italiani.
In this 44th edtion, “Romeo and Juliet” by Nicola Vaccaj opens the Festival.
The performances are set up on a special stage in the courtyard of Palazzo Ducale.
