Farnese Festival

Teatro Farnese, Parma

Parma, 30/01/2019: Il Teatro Farnese nel complesso Monumentale della Pilotta.

First edition of the Farnese Festival from 6 to 19 June in the spectacular Teatro Farnese.
Towards the most absolute abstract: the evening is the preview of the Farnese Festival. International review of ancient music, scheduled from 6 to 19 June 2023, at the Farnese Theater in the Pilotta Monumental Complex The spectacular Farnese Theater, in the Pilotta Monumental Complex in Parma, will be the unique and monumental setting which, from 6 to 19 June 2023, will welcome the first edition of the Farnese Festival.

The Farnese Festival aims to be, in a combination unique in the world, a musical review of the 17th and 18th centuries hosted in a monumental contemporary theater venue, the Farnese Theater, built by Duke Ranuccio I between 1617 and 1618 in the heart of the today's Monumental Complex of the Pilotta. Not only a Baroque theater without equal, the Farnese, with its mobile scenes and its serlianas that anticipate the boxes of the "Italian-style" halls, is also considered by experts to be the first modern theater in Western history.

The opening of the Festival, on 6 June, will represent a real celebration of the Farnese Theater, in which a spectacular videomapping produced by Stefano Gargiulo's Kaos Produzioni will be unveiled to the public, thanks to which it will be possible to admire the Arcoscenico of the seventeenth-century hall in all its chromatic, original splendor together with an amazing animation aimed at reviving the spirit of the divine artifice of the seventeenth century.

Review curated by the artistic director Fabio Biondi and conceived by the Director of the Monumental Complex of the Pilotta, Simone Verde.
