Teatro San Carlo to Present ‘I Puritani’ in Concert Instead of a Production

By Francisco Salazar

The Teatro San Carlo has announced a change for its upcoming performances of Bellini’s “I Puritani.”

The company noted, “We inform our audience that the opera ‘I Puritani’ by Vincenzo Bellini scheduled from Sept. 7 to 16, 2022 at Teatro di San Carlo will be performed in concert version.”

The opera, which was originally set to be performed in a production, will star Lisette Oropesa in her role debut. She will be joined by tenor Xabier Anduaga, baritone Davide Luciano, and bass Alexandros Stavrakakis. Giacomo Sagripanti conducts with a cast rounded out by Chiara Tirotta, Nicolò Donini, and Saverio Fiore.

The Teatro San Carlo di Napoli is currently performing “Tosca” with Jonas Kaufmann and is set to present a production of “7 Deaths of Maria Callas.”
