The “Verdi Gala” tour aims to reveal the musical identity of the land that gave birth to Giuseppe Verdi. It touches Parma, with its beautiful old town, then the castles of the Duchy, memory of Parma’s grandeur between the fifteenth and eighteenth Centuries, and the Parma Low Land, with Zibello, with its inimitable and delicious Culatello, and Busseto. Included the visit of Modena, city of Maestro Luciano Pavarotti.
3 days/2 nights. Validity: all year round
This tour is recommended for those who love the historic theaters and Verdi’s music and for people who, while visiting Parma territory, want to attend to an opera representation with an “opera star” at the Verdi Theater in Busseto, one of the most appreciated and longed-for places by international artists. It is a tailor-made itinerary including a private and exclusive opera concert, recommended for large groups, musical journeys and corporate events.
Available on request.
“The Mayor should know that it is not my task, nor is it that of anyone in the world, to organize the leading ladies…”. This was written in 1865 by a disconsolate Giuseppe Verdi. But love for the leading ‘divas’ of the day in Busseto, just like in Parma, has always been overwhelming and certainly time has not blunted the appetites of such a severe and demanding public. We invite the leading Divas of today to Busseto to delight our friends from around the world. Fiorenza Cedolins has already inaugurated the cycle “Opera Stars in recital”.
