47th Festival della Valle d’Itria
17th July – 5th August 2021
The 47th edition of the Festival della Valle d’Itria will take place in Martina Franca during the customary summer period.
The programme sketches a clear historical and cultural itinerary starting from the Neapolitan Baroque of Alessandro Scarlatti and Nicola Porpora, passing through Haydn’s Viennese Classicism, and finally reaching Schubert.

The operas of the 2020 edition
The 46th edition of the Festival will take place in Martina Franca from July 14th to August 2nd 2020.
The operatic titles that will be staged in 2020 will be: Gli amanti sposi by Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari, La rappresaglia by Saverio Mercadante and Leonora by Ferdinando Paër. A choice in line with the decades-long artistic project of the Festival, between rarities and rediscoveries, with the return of twentieth-century historical title never seen again in the contemporary age, and two nineteenth-century rarities. These titles will also be accompanied by Niccolò Piccinni’s interlude Il perucchiere, destined for the successful “Opera in masseria” initiative.

The edition we propose in Martina Franca is the rare 1912 version, with a rhythmic adaptation in Italian by Quirino...
One of the most sophisticated
festivals in Italy.
Martina Franca has distinct connections with bel canto. An opportunity for opera-lovers, academics and critics to come together.
Here in Martina Franca, philology triumphs. And in the moonlight in the airy atrium of the Ducal Palace, music makes its presence firmly known.
Puglia is there to be explored a little more each time, thanks to the Martina Franca festival.
For me this isn’t just a festival,
it’s a party too!
