Women & War

Women & War is the theme for Festival 2023, the fruition of a long-held concept of Artistic Director Rosetta Cucchi, who is intrigued to delve into the implications of this theme in opera. Each of the chosen operas highlights a different aspect of the struggles faced by women: conflict, prejudice and in making their voices heard. Three very different female characters, each fighting for something:

Zoraida in Zoraida di Granata is in a political fight against her destiny;

Olga in L’Aube rouge is struggling to change a nihilistic partner; and

Rosetta in La Ciociara is fighting for survival for herself and daughter.
