The country that invented opera has more than 800 theatres lying unused and neglected.
Now a group of young singers is leading the charge to save them. They have launched a
crowd-funding campaign to save Italy’s dilapated opera houses, hundreds which have been left to rot. Now, Italian citizens in the tiny town of Bevagna, Perugia, have donated a great deal of money to relaunch the spectacular Francesco Torti opera house, which was originally built as a palazzo in the 1100’s and then converted into an opera house in the 19th century.

This concert, was kindly made available to Artmusic.TV by Susanna Ohtonen, a Finnish soprano, who has lived and worked in Italy for 25 years and who has launched the initiative nicknamed ‘Adopt a Theatre’ campaign, to bring the country’s opera houses back to life.
