La Verità is an electrifying scenic extravaganza of sheer beauty, with precise stage lighting, amazing costumes, and  breathtaking acrobatics.  Inspired by a backdrop painted by Salvador Dalì for his TRISTAN FOU in the 1940s in New York, it is a combination of acrobatics, theatre, dance and music. Eleven multi-talented artists move and live-sing in a succession of images that lead us through surrealism, a love story, and a reflection about the truth. The concept of La Verità was developed over 35 years, consolidating into a unique aesthetic that is the hallmark of Compagnia Finzi Pasca.

The company that has performed in 63 cities in 24 countries has created three Olympic Ceremonies, two shows for Cirque du Soleil: Luzia in 2016 and Corteo in 2005 (for the latter, 9 million spectators in a 10-year world tour),  five operas of which Aida and Verdi’s Requiem are officially part of the Mariinsky Theatre yearly programme, Carmen and Pagliacci for the Teatro San Carlo in Naples,  Love from Afar for the English National Opera, London and Avudo, a multimedia show that combines video mapping, lights and water fountains for the city of Montreal (249,000 spectators in 4 months) and the next Fête des Vignerons (Winegrowers Festival) in 2019.

“A perfect balance between poetry, beauty and performance.” (France)
