This is a brand new way to enjoy the world of opera. Set in exclusive, elegant locations the evening is presented in the style of the old music rooms, where the proximity of the performers to the audience helps to amplify the emotion and transform the drama into reality.
Well-known operatic masterpieces have been elegantly reworked into touching slices of the original, performed by successful, professional singers in carefully selected dramatic costumes and accompanied by a pianoforte. The expert musical direction is the work of Riccardo Serenelli who manages to maintain all of the integrity and grandeur of the original plots. He fills the operas with emotional energy and captures the audience for the entire performance of an hour and a quarter.
The key word is “Emotion” and the operas are laced with it, in every tiny moment thanks to the skilful performances of the singers who are guided and directed by Maestro Serenelli. They are taken way beyond pure technique to be able to externalise this emotion and transmit it to the audience. The empathy created is palpable and the VillaInCanto experience is simply unique.
This experience is brought to life by the “Villa InCanto” cultural association, “Format Produzioni” in Verona and Maestro Riccardo Serenelli. Regular performances currently take place in the selected locations of Recanati, Verona, the Garda Lake and civ and will soon begin in Milan, Rome and Saint Petersburg
