Communications to the public | The 2020 season restarts at PalaDozza

From next autumn the Teatro Comunale di Bologna will have a new stage at the PalaDozza and the 2020 Season will thus be able to restart safely with all three of its main billboards: opera, concerts and ballet. Many of the appointments already scheduled for the autumn season are confirmed, numerous recoveries of shows suspended in recent months are expected and there is no lack of new proposals.

From 3 to 30 September 2020, the reimbursement procedure will be active via voucher for tickets and subscriptions relating to the shows of the current Season canceled until 30 September 2020, through the Vivaticket “VIVAforVoucher” page.

The box office of the Teatro Comunale di Bologna will be closed until 2 September; starting from 3 September it will be active by telephone on 051/529019 from Tuesday to Friday from 12.00 to 18.00 and on Saturdays from 11.00 to 15.00.

AUTUMN 2020

AT THE PALADOZZA
CONCERTS

On September 28, the concert with the TCBO Philharmonic conducted by Hirofumi Yoshida with soprano Jessica Pratt, originally scheduled for April 26. The concert directed by Roberto Abbado with the pianist Alexander Melnikov and the Filarmonica is instead brought forward from November 16 to October 12. On October 15 the concert of last March 30 will be recovered; unlike what has already been announced, the conductor Yoel Levi will climb the podium of the Orchestra of the Teatro Comunale and with him will be the pianist Michail Lifits. Confirmed, as per the bill, three appointments: Stefano Bollani in the dual role of conductor and soloist; Pinchas Steinberg with the pianist Federico Colli; Oksana Lyniv with violinist Stefan Milenkovich.

OPERA

From 29 September the opera returns with L’elisir d’amore by Gaetano Donizetti (until 7 October) which should have been staged last April, presented in semi-scenic form, while on 18, 20 and 21 October the three performances of Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly skipped last February which, for logistical reasons, are however proposed in concert form with the direction of Pinchas Steinberg. Giuseppe Verdi’s Otello has been confirmed from 11 to 18 November in the new directorial reading by Gabriele Lavia, conceived specifically for the spaces of the PalaDozza.

AT THE TEATRO COMUNALE 
BALLET

On 9 and 10 October the ballet in one act entitled 4 Stagioni, Là dove il cuore ti porta, is proposed for the Ballet Season, which will replace the ballet Lucrezia Borgia scheduled for 25 and 27 September, while Le Presbytère n’a rien perdu de son charme, ni le jardin de son éclat by Maurice Béjart, originally scheduled for the same dates in October, will not take place.

For all the events of the 2020 Season that are recovered (and which follow the regular subscription shifts depending on the dates) the tickets and subscription tickets already purchased remain valid (as well as the admission tickets of the Lucrezia Borgia ballet for 4 seasons ). The indications on how to access and on the positioning in the new rooms will be communicated shortly.
The appointments already scheduled for December are confirmed to date, such as La bohème by Giacomo Puccini, the concerts directed by James Conlon and Ryan McAdams and the international dance gala Les Étoiles. Information on where these shows and other news will be held will be communicated as soon as possible, also in accordance with the evolving health situation and with upcoming national and regional directives.
