After last year's success on the occasion of the first edition of the Gigli Opera Festival that brought the cultural proposal of Villa InCanto to the public's attention, we are now focusing on the works that from January 2018 will animate the Teatro Persiani in Recanati.

Less than a month after the inaugural opening scheduled for 12 January, we begin to discover the uniqueness of the performances that the staff of Villa InCanto, led by the mastery of Riccardo Serenelli, has decided to offer to its public.

It's a real gift what artists and organizational machine will propose. Those who wish to attend more than one opera or make a gift at Christmas can contact the Theatre directly, which will deliver the ticket in an elegant envelope worthy of the content. And with the purchase of a 38 euro ticket, the viewer will be entitled to a drink offered in the Persiani foyer. For further information on how to do this, please visit, the Fb Villa InCanto page, write to or call 349 2976471.

An unmissable occasion and a unique and original gift that will thrill fans and not only this Christmas 2017.

But let's enter the heart of the program and discover in detail the representations. It will begin on January 12th with Cavalleria Rusticana by Mascagni revisited with the unique style of Maestro Serenelli thanks to exceptional artists such as the sopranos Francesca Ruospo, Martina Malatini and Zala Hible, tenor Leonardo Gramegna and baritone Matteo Jin. To the music, the Quintetto d'Archi Beniamino Gigli is inevitable.

A cast of exception, therefore, whose experience cannot but result in a work of transport such that the public will applaud unreservedly.

Next, the second appointment scheduled for February 16 will see on stage Giuseppe Verdi's Aida, while for the last date we will have to wait for spring and to be precise on March 23rd when Giacomo Puccini, with Madama Butterfly, will warm up the audience with his "Japanese tragedy" dedicated to the Queen of Italy Elena of Montenegro.

A project full of stimulation, involvement and liveliness that the Maison Serenelli takes care of every year with stubbornness and precision and that is supported by the Department of Culture of the Municipality of Recanati and the Marche Region.

And waiting to assist, just book and, from this year, give the Opera of Villa InCanto is the most original way to wish you a good Christmas and a special new year.
