    The Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Festival


Firenze - April 29th - July 2nd, 2009

The program of the 72nd Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, which opens on the 29th of April with the world premiere of “Gotterdammerung”, the last day of Wagner’s Ring and the last in a collaborative project lasting several years, under the baton of Zubin Mehta and with the visionary staging of the Fura dels Baus, was co-produced with the Palau de les Arts of Valencia. This time the production was developed in Florence, and that is where it will have its baptism. No matter what, during the years, the festival is unaltered in character and as always a most prestigious set of events that should not be missed, including many exclusives that are only at the Festival, with several world premiers and firsts for Italy, and the most acclaimed stars of stage.
