Find the complete 2019-2020 Teatro Massimo Season and book your tickets online now.

"O tu Palermo, terra adorata ..." we hear in Verdi's opera in the Sicilian Vespers. It is true that the capital of Sicily is a wonderful city that continues to delight visitors well after their stay. For music lovers, it is also a paradise. It is imperative to book opera or concert tickets to attend a performance at the famous Teatro Massimo.

 

The Palermo Opera House is the biggest in Italy and the third largest opera house in Europe after the Palais Garnier in Paris and the Vienna Staatsoper. Its history is marked by highlights that have made its reputation but more importantly, its rich program offers a wide choice of operas and events that should not be missed. While many Italian halls very often languish in their repertoire, the Massimo innovates with the great titles of opera and classical music but also with surprises.

 

This season, besides the well-known masterpieces like Puccini's Turandot, Verdi's La Traviata or Rossini's Il Barbiere di Siviglia and Leoncavallo's I Pagliacci, we will be able to see a performance of Donizetti's La Favorite in French or the beautiful oratorio Das Paradies und die Peri by Schumann, staged. Musical lovers will be thrilled with My Fair Lady. One of the highlights of the 2019 season is the world premiere of a work by the famous composer Ludovico Einaudi. Winter Journey is the first ever opera by the world-renowned artist. Palermo is once again a leader in posting good proposals with some risk taking. The program that mixes symphonic concerts, dance, recitals and lyric productions is a reflection of this multicultural Sicily, open to the world.

 

And let´s not forget its perfect acoustics, the variety of its repertoire, the relevant choice of its staging and the quality of its large distributions as in past days with Enrico Caruso, Maria Callas or Renata Scotto that places the Teatro Massimo among the most exciting opera houses of Italy. Among the headliners, we can applaud the soprano Lisette Oropesa in Verdi's La Traviata or René Barbera in Idomeneo by Mozart. Sonia Ganassi faces John Osborn in Donizetti's La Favorite. Brian Jagde and Carlo Ventre share the role of Calaf in Puccini's Turandot. On the conductors side, the precise Philippe Pierlot directs Il Ritorno of Ulisse in Patria of Monteverdi with the staging of William Kentridge. Maxime Pascal conducts a Messiaen, Bartók, Stravinsky and Debussy concert.

 

The great composer and conductor Peter Eötvös who also conducts a concert creates the event. You must book your tickets without delay. To be complete, we should also mention the dance because Palermo has its own company which presents a beautiful repertoire both classic (Nutcracker of Tchaikovsky) and modern (creation of Angelin Preljocaj). Before the arrival in 2020 of Omer Meir Wellber, the new musical director who conducts a concert in March, we admire this series of very well chosen recitals (Jessica Pratt, Ian Bostridge in Schubert, Anne Sofie Von Otter, Waltraud Meier). The arrival of Mariella Devia  is like the Teatro Massimo, exceptional!
