After the first edition dedicated to Rossini’s Moïse et Pharaon, the exploration of the Dialogues des Carmélites by Poulenc and the edition dedicated to Idomeneo, we now have the fourth edition of Vox Imago about The marriage of Figaro.
The project – which aims to complete the analysis of the figure of Mozart begun with Idomeneo – examines every aspect of the masterpiece, taking its starting point from the Teatro alla Scala production that was the centre-piece of the 250th anniversary celebrations of the musician’s birth.
Over the years, Vox Imago has evolved, increasing its contents and use of digital supports, adding multimedia content (for example, the first complete translation of Mozart’s letters from Italy in the Olimpio Cescatti edition, in collaboration with Teatro alla Scala). The project aims to continuously improve its use of the latest technologies, with the not insignificant aim of making the world of music more accessible to the young through products that are exciting, and not only in terms of content.
