OVERVIEW OF THE 2017-2018 SEASON AT THE TEATRO LA FENICE 

 

There are a few must-see places of tourism and opera. The Teatro La Fenice in Venice is not only one of the most beautiful opera houses in the world, but is also located in the heart of Venice's lagoon city which needs no further introduction. It would be enough for the big institution to simply present a master-program, but fortunately this is not the case.

 

Even though the Italian repertoire is the most widely represented (who would complain?), the 2017-2018 season of the Fenice can delight both the less experienced spectators and the most demanding music lovers. The new production of Die Lustige Witwe (The Merry Widow) signed by renowned director Damiano Micheletto is eagerly awaited. Just like the first Italian performances of Richard III of the composer Giorgio Battistelli whose echoes are more than favorable, in the setting of Robert Carsen. And yet, the name of La Fenice is attached forever to Verdi. The Traviata again, La Traviata always, La Traviata more than ever! The opera created in this very theater is obviously the work to be seen, especially in the staging of the Canadian artist Robert Carsen. Visitors rightly wish to attend a performance of La Traviata, the undisputed masterpiece of the Opera in La Fenice.

 

Several series of performances during this season 2017-2018 will delight the spectators of the entire world. Another director has several shows this year. Bepi Morassi owes the success of Il Barbiere di Siviglia by Rossini and L'elisir d'amore by Donizetti. He is again invited to stage a rarity, The Metamorfosi di Pasquale by Spontini (at the Teatro Malibran). Another great show is Madama Butterfly where the scrutinised vision of Alex Rigola gives shivers as Bellini's Norma also on display during this 2017-2018 season of the Teatro La Fenice.

 

There are, however, three new productions that receive particular attention. A ballo in maschera is a great masterpiece by Verdi, though less immediately famous than Il Trovatore or Aida, while it is full of splendid arias where the great lyricists are distinguished. In the same category of opera for great voices, Semiramide is a pure masterpiece and without a doubt, the most beautiful opera of Rossini which still counts some successes! The great conductor Myung-Whun Chung conducts the new production of the most sublime of Puccini's operas, La Bohème. A theater of the scale of La Fenice must offer a production of this absolute masterpiece. You really should book your tickets now!

 

But at La Fenice, there are also dance performances and concerts all worthy of interest. The famous Belgian company of the Royal Ballet Flanders comes to Venice with shows designed by the brilliant Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Jeroen Verbruggen, not to be missed! An evening entirely dedicated to the great figure of Mikhail Baryshnikov and an international gala of dance gathering the great stars are also much awaited. On the concert side, just list the big names of Yuri Temirkanov, Myung-Whun Chung, Diego Fasolis, or Thomas Adès to be fully convinced that tickets are to be reserved as soon as possible to attend a show at the Teatro La Fenice Venice, this season 2017-2018.
