A few kilometers away from the Hotel Margherita,the Festival of Ravello will give you the chance to take part in a huge artistic and cultural event, besides visiting one of the most fascinating areas of our region.
Villa Rufolo, already celebrated in the words of genius Richard Wagner, was chosen for the festival by Girolamo Bottiglieri and Paolo Caruso as the perfect venue, seeing as in the late thirties even the prestigious Orchestra of the Neapolitan Teatro San Carlo, a temple dedicated to Opera and symphonic music in Italy, chose to perform there.
Initially the musical programme was centred above all on the Wagner repertoire, but all through the decades different artists have taken different musical directions in this amazing venue, both in the classical and in the contemporary sector.
Once again testimony of an absolute high level cultural project, the Festival of Ravello 2019 presents, from July to August, the « Orchestra Italia », dedicated to the Italian composers and orchestras. An amazing opportunity to listen the best of international symphonic music, from Wagner to some minor authors of our country, surrounded by the fantastic scenery overlooking the sea of Villa Rufolo.
Instead, chamber music is the protagonist of “Nel Giardino di Wagner”, one of the events hosted in the Sala dei Cavalieri, surrounded by flowers, scents and colors of the Mediterranean garden that in the past enchanted the genius of Leipzig. We are talking about midnight concerts, the show and the magical atmosphere are guaranteed!
The festival also offers room for « Le notes di Sigilgaita« , a series of organ concerts that features top-level artists such as Bernard Foccroulle, Olivier Latry and Luca Scandali, just to name a few. Everything will take place in the suggestive Ravello Cathedral!
Last but not least, “La meglio gioventù”. A special program dedicated to the young students of the Campania conservatories, who will play for you a repertoire able to range between classical and jazz music, in a vortex of emotions and music that will come out of Villa Rufolo to land in the squares, to the auditoriums and the churches of Ravello.
But the Ravello Festival still has many aces in his deck,
