Dallapiccola’s Volo di notte in Munich

Posted on 11 June 2012

Luigi Dallapiccola’s 1939 one-act opera Volo di notte (Night Flight), based on the story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, comes to the Akademietheater in Munich tomorrow night.

The opera is a coproduction between the Bavarian Theatre Academy August Everding and the Munich Music Conservatoire. Tobias Peschanel conducts; stage direction is by Igor Pison; the stage design and costumes by Evelin Maria Arwek.
