The 2024 edition

Before the end of the 100th Festival, the Fondazione Arena di Verona is looking ahead to a new century of great music and entertainment by presenting the seasons for the next two years. 2024 coincides with important anniversaries, not only for the history of the Arena: the first is the centenary of the death of Giacomo Puccini, the world's best-known and most performed opera composer together with Verdi. Slightly in advance of the exact anniversary, the Fondazione Arena will open the 101st Festival on Saturday 8th June  with Turandot, paying homage to Puccini with his most spectacular, fairytale-like work, with Franco Zeffirelli’s dreamlike sets, and costumes by Oscar winner Emi Wada. 

Also dedicated to Puccini will be the revival of Tosca, which will star Anna Netrebko in one of her most recent and acclaimed roles at La Scala in Buenos Aires, and a new special project that will  feature La Bohème for two dates  with an exceptional cast in this much-loved title, fourteen years after its last appearance in the Arena. 

Confirming itself as the largest, most popular repertory theatre in the world, the Fondazione Arena will also be presenting the most recent productions of Il Barbiere di SivigliaCarmen, and of course, Aida. The opera queen of the Arena will be seen in two different productions: the first 10 performances will see the return of Stefano Poda’s "crystal" production from the 100th Festival, with transparencies, unprecedented lighting effects and rich symbolism, suspended between Ancient Egypt and contemporary art. Exactly 111 years after the first Aida in the Arena (10 August 1913), from 10 August, the classic re-enacted production from 1913, by the late maestro Gianfranco de Bosio, a fundamental man of the theatre and twice superintendent of the Arena, returns for five performances, in the centenary of his birth. 

The 101st Festival 2024 will round off with five evening events: the great dance of Roberto Bolle and friends  will be returning for two dates, 23 and 24 July, while on 11 August, the Arena ensembles will be the stars of an evening event with Beethoven's Ninth Symphony  and its hymn to joy; on 21 August, Plácido Domingo returns for an evening with a Spanish atmosphere, together with numerous opera stars, while on 1 September the second opera-symphonic event will take place with Orff's captivating Carmina Burana.

Among the most important new features of the 101st Festival 2024 is the change in the starting times of the performances, moved forwards by 15 minutes compared to the current times. The June performances will begin at 9:30pm and at 9:15pm in July, while they will start at 9:00pm in August and September. Tickets at the same prices as in 2023 are also confirmed for next year, and will go on sale indicatively from 28 August on, and on Ticketone, the ticket office operator with Unicredit, major partner of Fondazione Arena.
