Screening of Giuseppe Verdi's GIOVANNA D'ARCO by Peter Greenaway e Saskia Boddeke.

Screening of Giuseppe Verdi's GIOVANNA D'ARCO by Peter Greenaway e Saskia Boddeke.

Opera production by Teatro Regio di Parma on the occasion of Festival Verdi.

For the series of operas from 'Festival Verdi', the Istituto Italiano di Cultura presents Giovanna d’Arco by directors Peter Greenaway e Saskia Boddeke, and music director Ramon Tebar in a new production by Teatro Regio di Parma.

Giovanna d'Arco (Joan of Arc) is an operatic dramma lirico with a prologue and three acts by Giuseppe Verdi set to an Italian libretto by Temistocle Solera, who had prepared the libretti for both Nabucco and I Lombardi. It is Verdi's seventh opera.

The work partly reflects the story of Joan of Arc and appears to be loosely based on the play Die Jungfrau von Orleans by Friedrich von Schiller. After writing the music over the autumn and winter of 1844/45, Verdi's opera had its first performance at Teatro alla Scala in Milan on 15 February 1845.

 

Music GIUSEPPE VERDI Editore Casa Ricordi, Milano.
