Martina Franca’s Festival Della Valle d’Itria, founded in 1975, celebrates its 40th Edition this year. The program includes the contemporary world premiere of Tomasso Traetta’s opera “Armida” (Traetta: 1727-1779). Maestro Diego Fasolis is making his comeback at the Festival, after his acclaimed success with “Rodelinda” in 2010. Juliette Deschamps will provide stage direction for the new production, with performances on July 27th and the 30th on the patio of Martina Franca’s Palazzo Ducale.
