Claudio Monteverdi Festival - Teatro Amilcare Ponchielli Cremona


Every year in Cremona, May is “Festival time”... the Monteverdi Festival.

Every year, the stage engineers set up the large stage in San Marcellino and in the most beautiful baroque churches of the city, the instruments are tuned in the quiet of the aisles, our maschere (who usually receives you in the theater) welcome the public on the churchyard and the braziers lit to indicate the beginning of the concert. Musicians come from all over Europe to Cremona, always with a touch of emotion and veneration for the city of Claudio Monteverdi. The audience applauds, asks for autographs and comments on the concert just experienced...

This year, sadly, the Monteverdi Festival will not take place in May... but the Festival does not stop! And the Ponchielli Theater does not stop, because art is life, culture is necessary.

Thus MONTEVERDI ONLINE was born, a large container which will be visible on the theater website and on its social channels where there are three sections with games, musical contributions, videos and plays, and a journey through the alphabet to discover Monteverdi from A to Z.

We are online here from May 9th, Divine Claudio’s birthday until June 21st, the day on which the Music Festival is celebrated all over Europe!
