Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
The Teatro comunale in Ferrara will be known from today as the Teatro Claudio Abbado.
The meastro, who died last week, conducted 41 concerts in the town, including an emotional benefit concert in 2012 dedicated to the theatre’s restoration after damage by earthquake.
Pictures are needed. This is a stunning theater with a unique oval courtyard. I believe the “Così” was filmed there, maybe CA’s only traversal of that opera.
Google “Ferrara Comunale Images” and then expand the offering. Courtyard should be seen.
Bravo to this gesture. It is only too bad that this was not done while C A was still alive during his last fragile years. It may have pleased him.
Thank you for all your activities, Mr. Lebrecht! Could you please confirm, that the Teatro Comunale in Ferrara is really renamed to Teatro Claudio Abbado? There is nothing about it on the webpage of the theatre – http://www.teatrocomunaleferrara.it. Many thanks!
