The operas of the 2020 edition
For the first time in the history of the Festival della Valle d’Itria, the current edition closes with the announcement of the operatic titles of next year: a result strongly desired by the Paolo Grassi Foundation, in line with the choices made by the major international festivals and useful for a longer and more widespread promotion of the Apulian event on the tourist markets.
The 46th edition of the Festival will take place in Martina Franca in the usual period between mid-July and beginning of August. The Board of Directors of the Paolo Grassi Foundation, led by President Franco Punzi, approved in recent days the project presented by the artistic director Alberto Triola which was confirmed also for 2020 in the role together with the musical director Fabio Luisi.
The operatic titles that will be stages 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 interludes of the Neapolitan School, destined for the successful “Opera in masseria” initiative.

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!
