In the summer of 1913, to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Giuseppe Verdi, the tenor Giovanni Zenatello and the theatre impresario Ottone Rovato took on the financial risk of promoting a magnificent lyrical festival. With the staging of Aida, the Arena di Verona became the biggest open-air lyrical theatre in the world, a supremacy that it still holds today.
Outside the Arena after the opera
Don Giovanni by Mozart. A great production.
The audience arriving on a balmy summer evening.
The magnificient setting with the orchestra in the foreground.
Happy and contented. What a performance in a magical setting
Baci a tutti
