 Spoleto Festival

'Festival dei Due Mondi'

51st Anniversary


26 June - 12 July, 2009

Situated in the green heart of Umbria, Spoleto is taken over by a whirlwind of artistic activity during its annual festival: enjoy quality classical music, theatre, ballet, visual arts and cinema in a beautiful, romantic city that invites leisurely strolls at dusk.

The programme consists of classical music, jazz, dance, ballet, opera, sacred music, puppetry and film. Concerts in the Piazza and the Cathedral Square span 500 years of music from the delicate tones of Gabrieli, via Prokofiev's humor and the rigors of Bach to the intriguing lightness of Barber's Summer Music. Nor are the classics forgotten with works by Schubert, Beethoven, Schumann, and Mendelssohn forming part of the concert programme.

In the stark and moving Romanesque basilica of Sant'Eufemia, visitors can enjoy a varied program of medievalliturgical chants, Byzantine ecclesiastic music, and traditional Slav sacred music.

In the Piazza two operas are given concert performances by the New York Juilliard Orchestra. They are Handel's Oreste and The Emperor of Atlantis by Viktor Ullman.

In the ancient Roman Amphitheatre (Teatro Romano), Dance Brazil perform along with the Ballet Hispanico. Meanwhile the Colla Marionette Theatre bring their new show to town. Ali Baba boasts brightly-colored costumes, elaborateset designs and sophisticated gadgetry - the hallmarks of this father and son team. The film programme features homages to Ingrid Bergman and Jeanne Moreau.
