Festival Valle d'Itria - 2017
17 Jul 2021 - 05 Aug 2021 Puglia -Martina Franca (Taranto)  Festival | Music

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 17 until August 5, 2021.

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 47th edtion, “Die Schöpfung” by Fabio Luisi opens the Festival.
