Fondazione Arena di Verona: we don’t want a silent 2020


2020 – 2021: THE REBIRTH



The 2021 Arena di Verona Opera Festival will present the productions originally scheduled for the 2020 Festival 2020, plus more exceptional events.

For the summer of 2020 the Artistic Management has prepared an extraordinary revolutionary project: the Arena you have only dreamt of.

Numerous friends of the Arena di Verona have seen the project “in the heart of music” and are supporting it enthusiastically.

We don’t want a silent 2020.

We are now ready to propose for this year a series of special events to be held in a completely new Arena setting. We have carried out in-depth work, in a responsible, carefully considered, fresh and innovative manner, which has resulted in a health protocol, currently being finalized, which combines artistic requirements with those regarding health and social distancing.
