Until September 13, excellent guests, both Italian and foreign, will make this edition of the Ravello Festival unique, organized in a very short time and with a thousand difficulties due to the Covid emergency, but with great pride. For the Ravello Foundation, led by the Regional Government Commissioner Almerina Bove, the realization of the 2020 festival is in fact a tangible sign of responsibility towards a cultural tradition that has never been interrupted for 68 years, and an important support, thanks to the economic support of the Campania Region , to the tourist season in one of the most popular places in the world.
The Ravello Festival 2020 presents a symphonic proposal that combines the internationality of events with the presence of Campania and Italian excellence.
In the breathtaking location of the Belvedere of Villa Rufolo overlooking the sea, one of the most beautiful in the world but also the most complicated to set up, with a grandstand reduced for compliance with the rules on physical distancing, the great names of international music will take turns.
For the first time the master Riccardo Muti will be present in Ravello (September 1); a first one will also be that of Daniele Gatti who will debut as director of the Mozart Orchestra (Ravello Festival production, 5 September); baptism at Villa Rufolo also for one of the greatest stars of the musical firmament, Cecilia Bartoli in a concert directed by Gianluca Capuano with Les Musiciens du Prince (18 August), produced in collaboration with the Lucerne and Salzburg festivals; the pianist Beatrice Rana returns, affirmed and on the rise (she came to Ravello, very young in 2013); great international returns are those of Valery Gergiev with his Mariinsky Orchestra (29 July), and Iván Fischer and his Budapest Festival Orchestra (21 August) accompanied by the voice of Anna Prohaska, Martha Argerich (23 August), and perhaps the most important jazz pianist today, Brad Mehldau (13 September).
