in collaboration with the Arena di Verona Foundation, the National Opera Theatre of Maribor and Cavallo &Company.
For the Italian and international fan, Opera in Piazza of Oderzo (formerly Opitergium) will represent, with Giuseppe Verdi’s AIDA, one of the most important venues of the coming Summer season in the entire Province of Treviso.
Every year, in the charming town of Oderzo and in its splendid Square – an elegant “open-air salon”, framed by splendid historical buildings – more than 16,000 tourists and music lovers, arrive from every region of Italy, Germany, France, Austria, Norway and many others distant countries.
Dedicated to the legendary and incomparable Tenor Giuseppe Di Stefano, the international Festival “Opera in Piazza Giuseppe Di Stefano” will reach this year its 25th birthday.
A difficult accomplishment but also an enormous satisfaction!
The International Festival “Opera in Piazza” has contributed to make Oderzo known in many parts of the world thanks to its archeological marvels, beautiful buildings, peaceful surrounding, the wine cellars, the excellent wines and its typical and local products.
Performances of Opera has been absent from this territory since the last World War. Their return took place along the banks of the Monticano with the splendid performance of La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi on June, 13th 1991.
The preparation in the Town Square were not finished yet and so the performance was held in the Teatro Cristallo with great success.
The International Festival Opera in Piazza in Oderzo captivates a huge part of international public that, in recent years, has always thronged the various venues of the Festival. The Festival will “exhibit itself”, as it has done for years, with Friendship Concerts at the various Lions Clubs in Germany and Opera clubs in other European countries, to spread knowledge about the most beautiful music culture of our country, in a historical atmosphere of great beauty.
For the many international visitors we will organize, as usual, friendly gatherings, guided visits throughout the Province of Treviso, visits to the wine cellars and tasting of our excellent typical local products: in line with the substance and the goals of EXPO 2015.
