We greatly regret to inform our spectators and all opera lovers that unfortunately live shows and relative rehearsals are also forbidden in Phase 2 of the current emergency. Therefore, due to the authorities’ orders and force majeure, it has become objectively impossible to stage the shows programmed for the 2020 Opera Festival.
The 2021 Festival of the Fondazione Arena di Verona will present the productions originally planned for the 2020 Opera Festival, with the addition of further top-grade events.

The Jonas Kaufmann Gala Event on 28th June is the first of the special events on the program and will be an unmissable event whose protagonist will be Jonas Kaufmann, the famous German tenor contended by theatres all over the world, finally on his eagerly awaited Arena debut.
“I am very happy to announce my debut in Verona, where I came many times as a student and always wondered what it would feel like to sing in front of that immense crowd in that special place. The opportunity never occurred, but now it has finally arrived.”
In case of cancellation of the performance, the “Jonas Kaufmann Gala Event” will take place on June 29th 2020.
Conductor Jochen Rieder
