piacenza 23 novembre 2011 opera lirica i lombardi alla prima crociata

Two works by Verdi, La Traviata and I Lombardi alla prima crociata; one by Gounod, Roméo et Juliette; and one by Strauss, Salomé: this is what the bill – officially presented in the prestigious Sala del Ridotto this morning – features for the 2011-2012 operatic season of the Teatro Municipale in Piacenza.[…]

The programme clearly focuses on the female figure; four women with varying personalities but sharing a strong symbolic characterization: from Juliet’s purity to Salomé’s sensuality, from Violetta’s loneliness to Giselda’s religiousness.

Up-and-coming young artists will be playing these roles alongside well-established singers and new talents of the Italian operatic scene, such as Gioele Muglialdo for ‘I Lombardi alla prima crociata’.
