Summer season 2015

Nicola Paszkowski

Famous symphonies, mighty choruses echoing Italian Risorgimento and catchy dance tunes for a program entirely devoted to the works of Gioachino Rossini and Verdi. Very famous pages of the golden age of Italian opera, often so popular to cross the boundaries of theater halls, such as in the case of Guglielmo Tell overture, ingeniously used by Stanley Kubrick for the soundtrack of his film A Clockwork Orange.
