After the summer break and the even longer lockdown, the artistic activity of the Maggio Musicale restarts on August 30th and 31st with two important and significant performances of Verdi’s Requiem Mass directed by Zubin Mehta, with a cast of outstanding solo voices, in piazza della Signoria in Florence. A tribute to the victims of the pandemic.
The performances will continue for 11 consecutive months (8 months-season and 3 months-Festival) and include a number of stars from the world music scene such as Zubin Mehta, honorary director for life of the Maggio, the former musical director Riccardo Muti, and the exceptional presence of James Levine.
Since the end of July the new Campaign for subscriptions began! It is called “Nothing like being here!” A call on people to subscribe and support the theatre, as well as enjoy the amazing shows of the Maggio Musicale.
