2018-2019 Opera and Ballet Season

Giuseppe Verdi, Giacomo Puccini, Antonio Vivaldi, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Sergej Prokof’ev, Jules Massenet, Gioachino Rossini, Tomaso Albinoni, Salvatore Sciarrino

The 2018-2019 Opera and Ballet Season of Fondazione Teatro La Fenice was presented on Thursday 21 June 2018 by the superintendent and artistic director Fortunato Ortombina. The Season will open on Friday 23 November 2018 with Giuseppe Verdi’s Macbeth, conducted by Myung-Whun Chung and direction by Damiano Michieletto.

A considerable part of the programme will be dedicated to great composers in the history of opera: Giuseppe Verdi, Giacomo Puccini, Antonio Vivaldi and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, as well as Sergej Prokof’ev, Jules Massenet, Gioachino Rossini and Tomaso Albinoni, and ending with Salvatore Sciarrino.

Lasting more than ten years, Maestro Myung-Whun Chung’s relationship with La Fenice is, and will increasingly be marked by Verdi. Following Macbeth, Myung-Whun Chung will conduct Otello, with the production by Francesco Micheli. Chung will open both the Opera and Symphonic Season, conduct the sixteenth edition of the New Year’s Concert and three concerts in the Symphonic Season with Giuseppe Verdi’s Messa da Requiem and Gustav Mahler’s Second Symphony Resurrection.

After more than thirty-five years’ absence, Aida will return to the Fenice with the historic production by Mauro Bolognini, with Roberta Mantegna as protagonist and Francesco Meli with his Italian debut as Radames. The new production of Antonio Vivaldi’s Dorilla in Tempe is part of the project on the rediscovery of the Red Priest’s opera production, which began this year with Orlando Furioso and thanks to which each of the upcoming seasons will include a production of the Venetian composer’s operas. The works by Mozart in the programme, on the other hand, are more a production ‘workshop’: Il Sogno di Scipione, produced together with the Venice Academy of Fine Arts, and Il Re Pastore.  A closer look (that will also continue in the next seasons) at the Venetian composer Tomaso Albinoni will introduce two of his masterpieces, the opera La Statira and the intermezzo Pimpinone with productions that are part of the Opera Giovani project, carried out in collaboration with the Benedetto Marcello Conservatory in Venice. Another novelty in the season is a new production of Gioachino Rossini’s Italiana in Algeri, Jules Massenet’s Werther and, from the contemporary repertory, Salvatore Sciarrino’s Luci mie traditrici; finally, on the occasion of Puccini’s anniversary, Turandot will be staged as part of the historic collaboration with the Venice Art Biennale. As far as dance is concerned, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo will stage the ballet Romeo e Giulietta in the version by the choreographer Jean-Christope Maillot to music by Sergej Prokof’ev. Completing the programme is Damiano Michieletto’s Don Giovanni, together with other unforgettable productions from the recent history of La Fenice: La Traviata with the production by Robert Carsen; Tosca, with direction by Serena Sinigaglila; Il Barbiere di Siviglia by Bepi Morassi; Madama Butterfly with sets and costumes by Mariko Mori – a special project of the 2013 Art Biennale – and Rossini’s face La Scala di Seta with direction by Bepi Morassi. This makes a total of one hundred and thirty-nine performances, from 23 November to 3 November 2019.
