The Minister of Culture Dario Franceschini has approved the appointment of composer Marco Betta as the new General Manager of the Teatro Massimo di Palermo.

“I am honoured to be of service to an amazing theatre which represents a symbol, a guardian and a promoter of the most profound values of the cultural and artistic identity of our country”, states Marco Betta. “My intention is to continue on the undertaken path: developing the social theatre projects, following the artistic sentiment of contemporary music's experimentations and observations. We are on the way, getting closer to the opening of the 2022 Season with Les Vêpres Siciliennes by Giuseppe Verdi, a masterpiece reinterpreted and profundly reconstructed by Omer Meir Wellber and Emma Dante, who both listened to the voice of these present times.”

Buon lavoro Maestro!
