Artist Management and Concert Promotion


Stage Management

OPERA FUTURA is a Stage & Production Management body established in Verona in 2010 for the aim of producing and performing operas, symphonic gala events and festivals, paying particular attention to offering high quality standard productions within the sustainable opera concept, based on operating budget's observance. Paolo Panizza, stage director and set designer - since 1984 also assistant to M° Pier Luigi Pizzi throughout the most prestigious Italian and European opera houses - is the art director and M° Massimo Taddia is the music director.

In 2011 Opera Futura has collaborated in "Il trovatore" by Giuseppe Verdi with the Fondazione Teatro Petruzzelli in Bari opening at Teatro Politeama Greco in Lecce, then Gaetano Donizetti's "The Elixir of Love," which premiered at Teatro Verdi in Sassari and was subsequently revived in other Italian opera houses. This production was also chosen for the 2012 New Year's Concert in Rimini.

In 2012 Opera Futura signed an international partnership with the Colorado Opera at Boulder (Denver, US) internationally opening its collaborations and coproductions. The first opera to be produced from this partnership has been Giacomo Puccini's "Madama Butterfly."

In 2013 Opera Futura produced Giuseppe Verdi's "La traviata" for the New Year's Concert in Rimini, "The Elixir of Love" for the prestigious Pafos Aphrodite Festival in Cyprus, G. Puccini's "La bohème" (Colorado, US) and G. Verdi's "Un ballo in maschera" (Vigevano, Italy) in coproduction with the Colorado Opera at Boulder (US), and F. Lèhar's new production of "The Merry Widow" for the 2014 New Year's Concert in Rimini.

In April 2014 Opera Futura's production of "The Elixir of Love" by Gaetano Donizetti was performed at the Seoul Arts Center (Korea) and in September 2014 Opera Futura will be honoured to come back to the XVI Pafos Aphrodite Festival in Cyprus with the new production of "Così fan tutte" by W. A. Mozart. The 2014 season saw new productions of G. Verdi's "Il trovatore" at the Teatro Sociale di Rovigo and Savona (Italy), G. Donizetti's "The Elixir of Love" and G. Verdi's "La traviata" at Teatro Cagnoni di Vigevano (Italy).
