Giorgio BattistelliA common thread running through Giorgio Battistelli’s operas links them to the masterpieces of Italian cinema: from Teorema (1992) to Il fiore delle mille e una notte (1999), both inspired by Pier Paolo Pasolini, to his most recent work, Divorzio all’italiana, based on the film by Pietro Germi. Yet another example is Prova d’orchestra (1995), six musical scenes from the fin de siècle on a text by Battistelli himself and loosely based on the film by Federico Fellini. A new production of this opera in Italian will be performed at the Staatstheater in Nuremberg in a co-production with the Stadttheater Bern. The first performance is on 14th March 2009 and additional performances will follow on 16, 19, 27 March, 7, 15 April and lastly 3 and 7 May.
