Festival Closing Concert 2019

Pubblicato il

To conclude the summer season of Serchio dell Muse there will be a performance of Tosca in the Alfieri theatre at Castelnuovo, Garfagnana.
One of the grand operas of Giacomo Puccini, Tosca is performed in three acts. Tosca is a political story, set in Rome in June 1800 (during the Napoleonic wars and a time of great political unrest). The plot centres around three main characters – Rome’s diva Floria Tosca, her lover Mario Cavaradossi (a painter and republican) and the corrupt Chief of Police, Baron Scarpia. It is a dramatic story of love, betrayal and murder.
The performance will be on the 6th of September at 21.00. it will be performed with friends of the operetta of Reggio Emilia under the direction of Stefano Giaroli.
Entrance to the theatre is without charge, but due to the great interest shown by our patrons I would suggest ringing the theatre and booking your seats.
The Alfieri theatre was built in 1860 and is the most important theatre in the Serchio valley, and one of the biggest theatres in the Lucca province. At one time the theatre sponsored regular opera seasons, but then changed to film performances after the War, and finally closed. It was purchased by the Town Council of Castelnuovo, and reopened in 2006
I would like to thank all who have supported Serchio delle Muse this year. We have been delighted with the success of the season and to see so many of our concerts filled to capacity. We are in the process of planning events during autumn and will keep you informed either through our website www.serchiodellmuse.it or Barga News. A special thank you to Keane for publishing these articles.
Imogen McNamara
Vice president Serchio delle Muse.
