Maggio Musicale - A journey for music lovers
Unique for its annual celebrations, Maggio Musicale is the most important event for Florentine society and classical music lovers in the world. Just by attending one of its concerts or operas at the Teatro del Maggio, you’ll be enchanted by the sublime quality of this cultural event, which has had the honour of hosting top singers and orchestra directors. The new location can be found next to the largest park in the city Le Cascine, once a hunting estate and agricultural company belonging to Cosimo I de’ Medici. Firenze Yes Please, together with the Fondazione del Teatro del Maggio, offers the opportunity for music lovers to visit the theatre, participating in a unique and special experience, exploring the areas that are normally closed to the public. Before attending one of its many concerts, ballets and operas, you can enjoy a private visit through magical places like the backstage area, the costume shop, the rehearsal studios and the beautiful cavea above the building. This exclusive experience allows you to learn about the work and hidden art of theatre: the backstage, the tricks and the mysteries of the magic of creation that the audience never sees, a unique and thrilling experience prior to the show. After the visit, let us spoil you with freshly prepared cold delicacies such as stuffed mini bread with local pecorino & mustard, bufala mozzarella & tomato, potpourri of ham & cheese and fresh fruit salad. Relax and sip on a glass of Champagne, before being accompanied to your seats by a member of the Maggio staff, welcoming you in the best way. Once in your seats, chosen especially for you, you can enjoy the performance, a true delight for the eyes and ears.
