Teatro Regio Torino
Piazza Castello 215
A word about this companyThe original Teatro Regio Torino was inaugurated in December 1740, with Francesco Feo’s Arsace. An important international opera house from the outset, it hosted the world premieres of Puccini’s Manon Lescaut (1893) and La bohème (1896), and the Italian premiere of Strauss’s Salome, conducted by the composer. The old theatre was destroyed by fire in 1936; its replacement was inaugurated in April 1973, with I Vespri siciliani directed by Maria Callas and Giuseppe Di Stefano. The new theatre rapidly established a reputation as one of the leading Italian opera houses, thanks largely to the quality of its Orchestra and Chorus. In 2007 Gianandrea Noseda was appointed Music Director of the Teatro Regio Torino. In addition to a full season of staged operas, Noseda leads the Orchestra and Chorus of the Teatro Regio on international tours to represent Italian music culture worldwide, undertaking residences at the Bunka Kaikan, Tokyo (in 2010 and 2013); in Spain (in 2011); at the Dresden Music Festival, the Vienna Konzerthaus and the Verbier Festival (in 2013); and, each year since 2011, at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Paris. In 2014 the Teatro Regio Torino under Noseda was invited in Saint Petersburg, Stresa, Edinburgh, Paris and also made its triumphal first tour in North America, including performances of Guglielmo Tell in Chicago, Ann Arbor, Toronto, and at Carnegie Hall, New York.
