    Musical, Ballet, Opera: three sneak peeks at the programme of Ravenna Festival 2015

    Well before Saturday, February 14, when, at the Alighieri Theatre, the veil will be lifted on the theme and full programme of the Festival's XXVI edition, the artistic direction of the Ravenna Festival anticipates the titles of three shows, the pre-sale of which will start on Tuesday, December 23.
    The first is The Rocky Horror Show, one of the best-known and most beloved musicals, which marks the Festival's return to Forl (May 22, 23 and 24, PalaCredito di Romagna), where the original productions of Cats, Mamma Mia and Evita were staged in recent years.

    The Riccardo Muti Academy of Italian Opera is born

    July 2015: The first master-class for conductors and rptiteurs - Teatro Alighieri, Ravenna, during rehearsals for Verdi's Falstaff
    Riccardo Muti's brand new project is the creation of an authentic Italian Opera Academy, open to young talents from around the world. With it, Muti, all the more eager to dedicate himself to the training of young musicians, finally realises a plan he had cherished for a long time the plan of handing down to young training musicians the lessons he himself learned from such masters as Vincenzo Vitale, Bruno Bettinelli and Antonino Votto. The training programme for young musicians Muti had started with the creation of the "Luigi Cherubini" Youth Orchestra in 2004 is thus complemented in a 360 view of all the aspects inherent in the creation of Italian opera.
