First edition of Piazza in Opera 2012 organized by CALT Comitato Amici della Lirica Trappeto (Friends of Lirics Committee of Trappeto).
The project – self-funded and sponsored by the town of Trappeto – features an extraordinary cast: Annie Sophie Duprels, Aldo Di Toro, Christine Buffle, Marcin Bronikowski, Fédéric Bourreau, Quirijn de Lang and Eric Roberts.
Rosalba Lo Duca, art director and Italian language coach in Europe’s most prestigious theaters, founded the organization in 2011 with the purpose of promoting and supporting the opera music culture in Sicily.
“Opera is our most famous made-in-Italy product in the world”, says Rosalba Lo Duca, “Melodrama in our project becomes pole of attraction for tourism and culture. Our idea is to lead people towards opera not through traditional channels as theaters, but in the town square, the piazza which in Sicily is the town’s social meeting place.”
This no-profit project has been self-funded through different initiatives held during the year by the people in Trappeto.
