There is perhaps no place on earth where the opera is more alive today than Parma province, one of its historic and spiritual homes.
But what about New York City? What about London and Milan? you say… Yes, it’s true that those great cities represent the zenith of classical opera in the world today. But it’s one thing to attend the Met in New York in your tuxedo and another to attend the Teatro Regio in Parma where even the working-class folks in the cheap seats know every single word and every single note of every single opera performed.
