Operaestate Festival Veneto: for those who love the show
Summer has just begun and in Veneto preparations are underway for one of the most anticipated events: the Operaestate Festival. Launched in 1981, the Operaestate is a theater, dance, and music festival with celebrities, now in its 34th edition. The program includes a full schedule of performances all throughout the year and especially in summer, that is to say in the months of June, July, and August. During these months the events take place in the main towns of the pedemontana: Asolo, Borgo Valsugana, Camisano Vicentino, Castelfranco Veneto, Cismon del Grappa, Feltre, Cittadella.
At the heart of the festival, however, is Bassano del Grappa (Vicenza), one of the main organizers of this cultural event.
It is in this city of about 50,000 inhabitants, in the splendid settings of the Castle Ezzelini, that some of the most significant performances of the Operaestate festival take place, including the comedian Natalino Balasso's show, scheduled on August 7, and the Padova and Veneto orchestra's concert, scheduled for July 27. Another event not to be missed, this time at the theater Palabasso, is the performance of the dancers and acrobats from the Momix company, from August 1 to 3. Tickets went on sale June 10th at the ticket office in Via Vendramini 35, in Bassano del Grappa (the ticket office is open Monday through Saturday from 9:30am to 12:30pm and from 3:30pm to 6:30pm).
