Teatro del Maggio Musicale

The Maggio musicale Festival

The Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Festival, one of the oldest festivals in Europe, is scheduled from April 13th to June 15th. This edition, the 86th, will also take place at the very modern Teatro del Maggio, on the edge of Parco delle Cascine (next to the Leopolda Station), well connected by the tramway.

This year's program is particularly rich and high quality, with the participation of important names on the international music scene. In the year of Giacomo Puccini's celebration for the centenary after yis death, there are two very famous Puccini Operas  on the programme: Turandot (from 21 April) directed by Zubin Mehta with a staging by Zhang Ymou and Tosca (from 24 May), conducted by Daniele Gatti; The world premiere, however, will be the opera Jeanne Dark, by Fabio Vecchi, directed by Mehta. Great anticipation for the symphony concert on May 12th conducted by Riccardo Muti at the head of the Wiener Philarmoniker, and that on May 25th conducted by Myung Whun Chung.

During the festival, the reopening of the large external cavea, one of the many evocative spaces of the Teatro del Maggio Musicale, is also planned for a series of shows.
