Francesca da Rimini


Francesca da Rimini / Riccardo Zandonai

[New production]


Opera in four acts
Libretto by Tito Ricordi, after the play by Gabriele d’Annunzio
Premiered on 19th February 1914 at the Teatro Regio in Turin


This is undoubtedly a masterpiece of the Italian repertoire that needs to be brought back into the limelight. It is one of the most powerful works of the early 20th century. Composer Riccardo Zandonai joins forces with the potboiler author Gabriele D’Annunzio for this heart-rending tragedy of the love of a cursed couple described by Dante in the dark circles of his Inferno. Two lovers, Francesca and Paolo, face the brutal vengeance of his two brothers. Forbidden love in the mould of Tristan and Isolde. A striking work backed by a luxuriant, lyrical orchestration, and a unique meeting point between the Italian musical tradition and Wagnerian aesthetics. It is performed by the Strasbourg Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Giuliano Carella, who returns to the OnR once more, while Stage Director Nicola Raab makes her début.
