Giacomo Puccini’s debut in the world of opera took place on 31 May 1884, when Le Villi was staged at the Teatro dal Verme in Milan. An example of an experimental stage in Puccini’s writing, even the Nordic-style fairy-tale subject was very fashionable in that period. The libretto by Ferdinando Fontana is in fact inspired by the ancient German legend of the Willis, fantastic creatures representing the souls of young women who were the victims of love. The Teatro del Maggio continues, as the last year with La rondine, his itinerary in Puccini’s young period.
Ehi Giò is an opera by Vittorio Montalti dedicated to Rossini will be staged in a definitive version after the one at Teatro Lirico di Spoleto in 2016. Montalti’s short opera depicts Rossini as an old man forced, through an unexpected visit from a group of workers, to relive a number of milestones from his legendary life. The ghosts of the past thus come back to life in a highly musical piece which moves through the wide range of vocal intonations used, electroacoustics and refined musical references.
