The Great Arts & Music come back in Florence: Maggio Musicale Fiorentino 2010

The greatest and most expected appointment with music, dance and theatre comes back in Florence with its sweet, bitter, harrowing and trenchant notes.

Emotions come back with several performances starring great artists and titles. In fact, since last April 29th, the 73rd edition of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, the festival dedicated to the art of music, ballet and opera has come back in Florence. This year, the event brings with it the charming East, in the pursuit of exotic and multi-ethnic themes, from Mozart to contemporary music, with the title “Verso Oriente” (“Toward the East”).

The Maggio Fiorentino playbill schedules great opera titles, stunning concerts and breathtaking performances and shows, among several brand new personalities and artists.

Until June 22nd 2010, a series of performances will take place in Florence nights, keeping you company evening after evening in a mass of emotions in many theatres of Florence with operas, concerts and ballets, in which many great artists will perform, such as Muti, Metha, and others. The venues of such performances will be: Teatro Comunale, Piccolo Teatro, Teatro Pergola, Teatro Goldoni and the Aula Magna at the University.

Among the events in the works, many meetings with authors such as the one scheduled on May 25th with Marcello de Angelis. In addition, a brand new element of this edition is Jazz, which for the first time takes part in the event of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino: in fact, great names of jazz will arrive at the festival, such as the trumpet-player Paolo Fresu.

Considering the great success of the past editions, the Maggio Off Music Contest comes back also this year, the competition where young musicians, groups and singers (between 18 and 30 years old) challenge each other, among very different kinds of music: from rock to blues, from electronic music to metal…so, all the musical dimensions belonging to youth, between innovation and diversity.

As far as ballets is concerned, a performance by Guillaume Côté with Zdenek Konvalina and entitled “Impermanence” is scheduled on Sunday 23rd May.

These and many other performances and shows in Florence, until 22nd June 2010. Don’t miss it!
