Is it possible to bring together the three titles which define the “popular Verdi trilogy” with a common thread that unites them, and a single directing and dramaturgical style? Francesco Micheli, the maestro Fabio Luisi, and the Maggio believe so, convinced that the “trilogy” presents Giuseppe Verdi as one of the nation’s fathers. “That thread that unites, passes and weaves the plots, taking on the colours of our flag, leads the “trilogy” to become a polyptych of intense colours, which tells us what we are, that which we should be, or rather that which we want to be. Green is the colour which portrays Rigoletto: ambiguity, jealousy and anger are green the colour which is often attributed to these conditions and states of mind. (Francesco Micheli, director)
