2012-2022: ten autumns, ten trilogies. The great lyric repertoire, ballet, operetta; a few special projects; lots of Verdi, a Puccini that bordered on the musical, and some unforgettable, formidable women… And now… Mozart! Nothing less than the Da Ponte trilogy! The bold and ambitious formula of the Ravenna Festival Autumn Trilogy returns with three unparalleled masterpieces, joining forces with two of the oldest opera houses in Europe, the Swedish Drottningholm Palace Theatre and Opéra Royal de Versailles, to complement the “local” Cherubini Orchestra and the young conductors of the Riccardo Muti Opera Academy. A mix that, thanks to the agile stage machinery, will capture the audience on consecutive nights, and drag it into the vortex of an unforgettable full immersion in Mozart.

The Ravenna Festival’s Autumn Trilogy is also on ITsART: experience the emotions of this Opera evening, exclusively on the streaming platform, where you can find all the best of Italian art and culture!
