Donizetti Opera 2024

Festival 2024

2015-2024: the Donizetti Opera festival – the international festival dedicated to the composer from Bergamo, organized by the Donizetti Theatre Foundation chaired by Giorgio Berta with the general direction of Massimo Boffelli, the artistic direction of Francesco Micheli and the musical direction of Riccardo Frizza – has come to its tenth edition, which will take place in Bergamo, “The City of Gaetano Donizetti”, from 14 November to 1 December 2024.

The Donizetti Opera festival is made possible by the support of Allianz (Main Partner and Honorary Member of the Donizetti Theatre Foundation in Bergamo), Intesa Sanpaolo, SIAD, Fondazione Cariplo, KPMG, PT Avant, REA Dalmine, Habilita, ATB and ClayPaky (Technical partners) and a growing number of companies adhering to the Donizetti Ambassadors project that support the festival through Art Bonus.
As we wait for the autumn, another appointment not to be missed for all fans: on Friday, 3 May (8.00 pm), at the Donizetti Theatre, Francesco Micheli, together with some guests, will present the festival programme with the conference-show Donizetti Revolution vol. 10 created in collaboration with Dramaturg Alberto Mattioli; the presenting partner of the event will be Automha.

The 2024 edition of the Donizetti Opera festival will, therefore, be special and celebratory, with its weekends “starting” on Thursdays. LU OpeRave will be staged again (Thursday 14, Thursday 21 and Friday 29 November), the new 2023 creation inspired by the most famous of Donizetti’s operas; for this revival “with variations”, LU OpeRave will be staged in a different venue from that of 2023, not specifically a theatrical one, but always open to conviviality and aiming at our present time and innovation. Two famous masterpieces by Gaetano Donizetti will be staged at the Teatro Donizetti: Roberto Devereux (Friday 15, Saturday 23 and Thursday 28 November) and Don Pasquale (Sunday 17, Friday 22 and Saturday 30 November). The Teatro Sociale will host the modern premiere of the “Rome 1824” version of Zoraida di Granata (Saturday 16 November, Sunday 24 November, Sunday 1 December) for the #donizetti200 cycle.
