On Rai5 (channel 23) a "reopening" in the name of opera
Tonight, November 20, from 8 pm on Rai 5, live from the Donizetti theater in Bergamo, the opera Marino Faliero by Gaetano Donizetti. The theater reopens specifically for the television audience after a three-year restoration. The show is included in the program of the Donizetti Opera 2020 Festival, but obviously considering the lockdown there will be no spectators in the structure. Maestro Riccardo Frizza will conduct the Donizzetti Opera Orchestra and Chorus. The direction is by Stefano Ricci. The protagonist is Michele Pertusi in the role of Marino Faliero, flanked by Bogdan Baciu (Israel), Michele Angelini (Fernando) and Francesca Dotto (Elena). The television direction is curated by Arnalda Canali.
