Frustrated lovers, the pursuit of money, inter-generational rivalry, and a false identity: Un giorno di regno has all the ingredients for a classic Italian comedy. But Un giorno di regno was a notorious failure at its world premiere and soon disappeared from the stage.

A new critical edition has revealed just how much care Verdi put into the work – re-directing attention to its succession of brilliant arias, comic mishaps and poignant emotion. The time is ripe for Verdi’s comedy to be heard again, reminding us all of the truths to be uncovered in mischievous fantasy.

Concert performance in Italian with English surtitles.

5.45pm: Pre-concert talk by Ditlev Rindom (ticket holders only)
(Please note, venue doors open at 5.30pm)

Duration: approx. 2 hours 45 mins (incl. interval)
