TEATRO DI SAN CARLOS OPERA, NAPLES, ITALY

Naples’ legendary Teatro di San Carlo.

September 12 and 14, 2018 (7.30 p.m.)

TEATRO DI SAN CARLOS OPERA, NAPLES, ITALY

Naples’ legendary Teatro di San Carlo, the oldest continuously active opera house in the world (since 1737), even before Milan’s La Scala and Venice’s La Fenice theatres, was commissioned by the Bourbon King Charles III of Naples. The San Carlos Opera company has enjoyed great success all over the world and is known for its critically acclaimed productions and singers. Leading composers of the world like Johann Adolph Hasse, Joseph Haydn, Johann Christian Bach and Christoph Willibald Gluck among others have considered a performance at the historically important San Carlos as a goal of their career. The famous Italian composer Gioachino Rossini, from 1815 to 1822, was house composer and artistic director.
