All have heard about the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino: the famous music festival that since 76 editions brings to the spectators lyric, ballets and classic music masterpieces. For the 2013 the expectation for the upcoming Giuseppe Verdi Opera show is growing: the Don Carlo (from 2nd to 12nd of May) and the Macbeth from 17th to the 25th of June.
For those who love the classic music instead, the concert of 11st of May, directed by Zubin Metha, and the ones of 4th of May directed by Claudio Abbado: in schedule Richard Wagner (Tannhäuser, Ouverture), Giuseppe Verdi (Te Deum), Hector Berlioz (Symphonie Fantastique op. 14).
