Riccardo Muti invites the young conductors of his Academy to replace him on the podium for Nabucco
For health reasons, the Maestro will not conduct the Cherubini Orchestra in the concerts at Teatro Galli in Rimini and at Teatro Alighieri in Ravenna

Maestro Riccardo Muti, following a diagnosis of pneumonia that ruled out a Covid-19 infection, has had to renounce his scheduled concerts at the Sagra Musicale Malatestiana and at the Ravenna Festival, but has turned them into an opportunity for those he guided to discover Verdi’s score. The young conductors he has recently tutored through the seventh edition of the Riccardo Muti Italian Opera Academy, held at the Fondazione Prada in Milan, will replace him on the podium of his Orchestra Giovanile Luigi Cherubini for a selection of pieces from Nabucco in the concerts at the Teatro Galli in Rimini on Saturday, December 18, and at the Teatro Alighieri in Ravenna on Monday, December 20. And if the first Ravenna Festival’s project in 2021 – the streaming tour of Cherubini and Muti – could count on the support of BPER Banca, the latter will participate in the debut of the young conductors chosen by the Maestro, confirming its support of the Festival.
