On Friday, October 13th, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” the premiere of Teatro Carlo Felice, will be performed in the theatre and also in other locations.
The Theatre will be in service to the citizens, increasingly international and widespread, open to all! This will be the case for the opening of the season at Teatro Carlo Felice in Genoa, which will begin on Friday, October 13th with “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” the three-act opera by Benjamin Britten with his own libretto and Peter Pears, adapted from William Shakespeare’s comedy.
A premiere open to all
The performance, scheduled to take place in the theatre at 8pm, will extend beyond traditional venues to reach the population of the Genova Marassi penitentiary, as well as the common areas of San Martino Hospital in Genova, the Residential and Semi-Residential Disability Center Asl3 in Quarto, and the Rsa Residenza Anni Azzurri in Sestri Ponente.
The audience in these facilities will watch the opera in real-time with Teatro Carlo Felice, either at 8pm or at a different time, to accommodate the needs of the residents and patients. This is the case for San Martino Hospital, which will broadcast the performance in the Chemotherapy Administration Room of the Cancer Centre at 11:30 AM on Friday the 13th.
The opera is conducted by Donato Renzetti, the theatre’s emeritus director, with direction by tenor, orchestra conductor, and artistic director Laurence Dale. The new production was created by the Fondazione Teatro Carlo Felice in collaboration with the Royal Opera House of Muscat (Oman).
