Don’t miss the spectacular 2013 Verona Festival centenary season
13 November 2012
Spectacular setting: the Arena di Verona
Guiseppe Verdi (1813-1901)
For opera lovers, the Arena di Verona offers the most dramatic setting for a truly memorable evening. Built in AD30 for gladiatorial combats the Arena has a rich history, but is now famous for its annual outdoor opera performances each summer.
2013 is set to be a spectacular opera season!
Not only is the Arena celebrating its centenary of hosting outdoor opera, but it is also the bicentenary of Giuseppe Verdi’s birth.
The organisers are extending the season and also putting on more performances including:
- Special gala performances featuring Plácido Domingo
- The opportunity of seeing Aida with the beautifully restored original 1913 staging as a tribute to Giuseppe Verdi
