“The 2021 edition of the Piccolo Opera Festival opens under the auspices of very good news: Nova Gorica, Slovenia and Gorizia, Italy will be European Capitals of Culture in 2025!”
The Piccolo Opera Festival aims to grow stronger and become an established cross-border opera festival through its innovative project to provide an authentic “Opera Experience without borders”.
A musical journey through a number of the most beautiful historical gardens of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, in collaboration with ERPAC Friuli Venezia Giulia and the class of Baroque singing of the Verona Opera Academy under the lead of Sonia Prina.
Many operas are set in castles, which are plenty and very well preserved in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region. We have selected a few among the more beautiful: heroic arias and love duets will resonate along their medieval towers.
The events of this section will remind us of the past and help us plan for the future: 600 years ago the Aquileia patriarchal state, cradle of the Friuli region identity, collapsed. Amongst the Collio/Brda vineyards, a common future takes shape beyond borders.
