Reserve a seat to attend the rehearsals of Riccardo Muti (Aida – Giuseppe Verdi).

The great opportunity to follow the full period from the first rehearsals to the final performance in concert-form.
One first event with Maestro Muti at the piano who presents Aida to the audience opens the period of rehearals with singers and orchestra in the following days.
You will have the exclusive opportunity to rediscover Aida with a Maestro who, in 2017, has celebrated fifty years of career and has dedicated most of his life to Giuseppe Verdi and to the Italian Opera.
Rediscover Aida through a musical thought. A thought resulting directly from the teachings of great  masters of the past. Antonino Votto indeed, great conductor and for long assistant of Arturo Toscanini, has been the teacher of Riccado Muti.
Arturo Toscanini, great interpreter of Verdi a well as of the italian Opera in general, played the cello in the orchestra conducted by Giuseppe Verdi.  A musical knowledge line that, going back through the aforementioned artists,  arrives to Verdi’s world. A knowledge that Riccardo Muti wishes to pass on to  young generations of musicians and to the audience of enthusiasts.

Antonino Votto
(Piacenza, 30th October 1896 – Milan, 9th September 1985)
Before becoming a successful conductor, Votto initially appears on scene as a virtuous pianist in 1919 in Trieste.
For long he is Arturo Toscanini’s assistant at Teatro alla Scala where he opened the lyrical season seven times.
Starting from 1928 he is one of the most precise interpreters of the Italian opera.
Moreover, for about thirty years from 1941, he is chair of the conduction class at Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi in Milan, where he teaches to other important interpreters of contemporary music. One of these is Riccardo Muti.
On the occasion of his death, Riccardo Muti remembers him with these words:
“With rare competence and without boldness, he opened the secrets of conduction to hundreds of young musicians, firmly believing in the values of the Italian school, plunging its roots – through Toscanini – into an absolutely moral approach to music. I am proud that I was his student and, as a musician, I owe him a lot”.
