Opera

Opera Season 2017/18



The Orchestra is extremely active in the production of opera; its thirty years’ history have seen an extensive catalogue of operas. Since the 2010/11 season, the ORT has been a constant presence on programmes in the theatres of Livorno, Lucca and Pisa. This initiative is the result of an agreement between the Tuscany Region, the ORT Foundation and the three traditional theatres.
From October this year until March 2018, the usual series of events will once again see the ORT busy with operas by Donizetti and Puccini in a tour scheduled to include theatres in Pisa, Lucca and Livorno, as well as others outside the region.
