"My vision is that of a theatre in constant dialogue with its territory and in the heart of Italy’s cultural challenges. An inclusive and sustainable opera house ready to lead the socio-cultural transition we are living today, supported by its community through a mutual exchange of tangible and intangible resources." Luciano Messi, Sovrintendente

Teatro Regio di Parma is one of Italy's most famous theatres of tradition, with a history of nearly 200 years. Alongside its lyric season, every year it hosts Festival Verdi, the only monographic festival worldwide that is dedicated to Giuseppe Verdi, for which much scientific research is conducted. Teatro Regio reaches its territory through special projects outside theatre that embrace places of fragility and the outskirs. 

The artistic excellences employed ensure high qualiy productions that are rooted to the community while speaking to an international audience. Developing educational programs both for professionals, through the academies, and for young audiences, through tailored productions, allows Teatro Regio to combine tradition with innovation.


Festival Verdi 2023 will stage "I Lombardi alla Prima Crociata" directed by Pier Luigi Pizzi and conducted by Francesco Lanzillotta, "Trovatore" directed by Davide Livermore and conducted by Francesco Ivan Ciampa at Teatro Regio of Parma, "Falstaff. Tutto nel mondo è burla" directed by Manuel Renga and conducted by Alessandro Palumbo at Teatro Verdi of Busseto and "Nabucco" in concert format at Teatro Magnani of Fidenza. The Festival will open with Verdi Street Parade, a festive evening including concerts, shows and dance performances all over the city centre and includes a collateral program of events around the city and the province.  


Support Teatro Regio di Parma

Verdi Street Parade is a roadshow event opening Festival Verdi 2023. There are 14 spots where exhibitions are performed including a gathering of all the artists for a final show "Sull'ali dorate" taking place in one of the main squares of Parma. It is an opportunity to allow the community to get familiar with music by Giuseppe Verdi through workshops, dance performances, concerts, chorus singing, urban theatre and live painting.
