The midday concerts, which will be performed by young talents from the major Italian conservatories and winners of the National Arts Award, are back, very awaited, while the Concerts of the Evening will be curated by the “Francesco Morlacchi” Conservatory of Perugia. An international co-production, to which the Spoleto Festival has contributed, will then stage the new version of The Beggar’s Opera by John Gay and Johann Christoph Pepusch, with the musical idea of ​​William Christie and the direction of Robert Carsen. The dance is represented by choreographers Lucinda Childs, Jean-Claude Gallotta and John Neumeier.
