Musica in Castello: Giuseppe Verdi music festival in Italy

Musica in Castello is an Italian music festival dedicated to one of the greats of Italian music: Giuseppe Verdi.
The festival reaches its seventh edition this year, and is directed by Giovanni Lippi.
While Verdi’s music is the focus, the program is anything but conventional classical music.

The opening night was presided over by a modern musical genius, Enzo Jannacci, famous for his humoristic musical pieces.

The program continues through the Italian summer, with high points in August.
The festival takes place in traditional Verdi “locations” such as Parma, Busseto, Salsomaggiore, passing then to Polesine Parmense and Fidenza.

Internationally renowned artists will perform, including Domenico Nordio on the viola, Mikhail Lidsky on pianoforte, Erich Oskar Huetter on the cello, Paul Gulda and Stefania Tallini on the piano and the Quartetto Elisa.
Operatic pieces will be sung by mezzosoprano Sarah Maria Punga, baritone Alberto Gazale, the Teatro Regio chorus from Parma and the Coro Verdianeum of females and boys.
