For those not in Rome, the opening night performance will be Live Streamed on Rai 3 at 7:30 European Time.
Vick is known for his controversial productions as well as his experimental and revisionist stagings of traditional and modern operas. He has also worked in many of the world’s leading opera houses including the Metropolitan Opera and the Pesaro Festival and is currently artistic director of Birmingham Opera Company. Many of his productions are on DVD including Berg’s “Lulu” from the Glyndebourne Festival and Verdi’s “Falstaff” from the Royal Opera.
Mozart’s “Cosi Fan Tutte” will run through Jan. 27.
