A great appointment with the contemporary arts is coming back to Rome: the Roma Europa Festival 2010, an event entirely dedicated to music, dance, cinema and theater that this year is going to celebrate its 25th edition. As usual, in the works we’ll find many international artists, performances, surprises and emotions.

On Tuesday 21st September, the festival will be inaugurated with the Orphée of the Montalvo-Hervieu Company at the Auditorium della Conciliazione.

A real journey in the perspectives of the international artists and in the contemporary arts, where changes of our contemporary world will be put on the stage.

The event schedules 38 appointments, among which we find 20 national premieres and 3 world premieres. There will be important artists who already took part in the preceeding editions, such as Romeo Castellucci, José Montalvo and Dominique Hervieu, Jan Fabre. In addition, many artists will make their début, such as Guy Cassiers, Wajdi Mouawad, Laurie Anderson and Massimiliano Civica.

In the section dedicated to the Music, we will find in the works many events, among them, the Visual Concert taking place on 1st and 2nd October at 8.30 pm at Palladium, an evening dedicated to the music of Kaija Saariaho and Jean-Baptiste Barrière with an audio-visual performance, a deep fusion between musical and visual elements.
