Waiting for further developments in government regulations on the opening of shows to the public, currently suspended until 24 November, the Donizetti Opera festival will not stop and will restart with the inauguration of its new web tv, created thanks to Fondazione TIM.
The web TV schedule will be composed of specific formats, such as a series of videos from rehearsals with the journalist Alberto Mattioli; interviews with the protagonists; the cycle “Parla con Gaetano” (“Talk with Gaetano”), in which the guest artists of the festival (but not only them) conversate with the composer; and also – considering new restrictions on welcoming audiences in the theatre – video footage of the performances of the first weekend, as well as a series of broadcasts with Francesco Micheli and some guests called to comment on the opera shows live in an innovative digital living room.
Access will be free, with the possibility to explore archival proposals or original materials. The full programme dedicated to the 2020 Festival, including the live streaming of the shows, will instead be available only for subscribers to the web offer.
2020 Festival Subcription
The Web TV subscription includes full streaming of the operas Belisario and Le Nozze in Villa, and also three visits in the backstage with Alberto Mattioli, interviews with the protagonists, and a special surprise – by Francesco Micheli and other friends of the Festival – we are organising to “watch the shows together even if we are distant”. Morevover, for everyone, Marino Faliero will be broadcast free-to-air to celebrate the first opera at the Donizetti Theatre! But we do not want to spoil to much….
