GREEN PASS MANDATORY

 

An exclusive experience of MI EXPERIENCE, which brings back an ancient tradition of the salons of the nobility.


«One fine day, we'll see

A wisp of smoke

On the extreme border of the sea

And then the ship appears "

 

Is there anything more exclusive than the Prima della Scala? Yes, enjoy an opera privately in the Villa, as was the custom in the noble salons of past centuries. 

 

A truly exclusive event, framed by the splendid Villa Sormani Marzorati Uva, a late 17th century villa that still preserves the original rooms of the typical 19th century noble Villa di Delizia.

 

The famous opera "Madame Butterfly" will be staged in the 19th century Music Room.


It is one of Puccini's best known works, composed entirely in 1903.  The first performance took place at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, on February 17, 1904, immediately achieving enormous success.


Villa Sormani is now recognized as a relevant Cultural Pole of the Territory; we believe that the love for beauty, art and culture should be the way to go to build a better future. The Opera in Villa brings to life, in the rooms of the Villa unchanged over time, the Great Italian Musical Tradition.


Our guests will allow themselves a journey through time, returning to that tradition that saw artists perform in the Villa before in the great theaters, in front of a small audience of gentlemen and ladies.

 

All that remains is to delight us with this splendid work, appreciating the fact that Art and Culture have been able to return to give us Emotions!

 

It will be the opportunity to experience an unforgettable afternoon dedicated to great music, immersing yourself directly in the Opera and in its Time!
