Canada – Festival Verdi on the big screen

A film series of some of the most representative operas produced by Festival Verdi starts in Toronto on the 5th of October. “Giovanna d’Arco” by Giuseppe Verdi under the direction of Peter Greenaway and Saskia Boddeke opens the series.

Festival Verdi (now going on in Parma and Busseto) is the only festival exclusively devoted to studying and staging the works by Giuseppe Verdi.
First organized by the Teatro Regio di Parma in 2001 on the occasion of the centenary of the Maestro’s passing, it has since then guested extraordinary opera singers, conductors, directors.

To enjoy some of the most representative works produced by the Festival, here is a series of screenings proposing five full-length operas from Festival Verdi.

On October 5, the Italian Cultural Institute in Toronto presents "Giovanna d’Arco", conducted by Ramon Tebar, a new production by Teatro Regio di Parma for the Festival Verdi 2016 edition.
It is a very peculiar setting up expressly created by directors Peter Greenaway and Saskia Boddeke for the Teatro Farnese in Parma, a precious Baroque theatre built with wood, stucco, and papier mâché. Luciano Ganci, Vittorio Vitelli, Vittoria Yeo, Gabriele Mangione and Luciano Leoni are the interpreters, besides I Virtuosi Italiani and the Choir of Teatro Regio di Parma.

Realized thanks to the long-standing co-operation between the Emilia-Romagna Region dept. for cultural activities abroad and the Italian Cultural and Diplomatic network, the screening of operas from Verdi Festival is programmed also in Hamburg, Amsterdam, Athens, Beograd, Edinburgh, Oslo, Prague, Sofia.
