…treat yourself Spoleto for Christmas: from December 1st 2019 to March 8th 2019, a lot of initiatives among music, theatre, dance, sport and gastronomy are scheduled to liven up Christmas time and wintertime in Spoleto.

The “priestess” of rock Patti Smith with her own show called “Words and music” (Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti, December 3rd at 09.00 P.M.) will celebrate in Spoleto her comeback to Italy. 
The extraordinary talent of Moni Ovadia, an actor and an artist good at telling the eternal wandering of the errant Hebrew, at the Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti (on December 27th at 09.00 P.M.) with “Cabaret Yiddish”.
The Ensemble Simphony Orchestra with the concert The legend of Ennio Morricone Vol. 2°, a new repertory with the exceptional masterpieces, by one of the most important rearranged musician, proposed in a theatre concert of great emotional impact (date on December 28th at 09.00 P.M., at the same Teatro Menotti).
This and much more in the schedule of Spoleto in wintertime. There are two events to say goodbye to the 2019 and to welcome the new year. In piazza Garibaldi, starting from 10.30 P.M., the concert of Tony Esposito with Enrico Capuano & La TamurriataRock, a wonderful musical project which combines the Neapolitan rhythmic sound with the rock folk. In the streets and in the squares of the old town will celebrate the New Year’s Eve also with Banda Irè, a street band composed by 12 elements which will welcome the 2020 with the sound of Samba, Axè, Samba-reggae and funky.
At midnight you can watch the suggestive fireworks which, from Albornoz Rock, will fill the Spoleto sky with sounds and colors. Furthermore, for the entire Christmas time (November 30th – January 14th) the Casina Ippocastano will be hosting the Christmas Market, with the Chico Mendez Park which will turn into “The enchanted Forest”, an area where you can watch the artistic lights and you can also watch, every weekend, some musical concerts and Christmas shows. And then again sport, theatre, music, exhibitions and many other dates.
Some events of Spring 2020 have been moved forward with the comeback of the duo Lopez-Solenghi on March 15th, the International Week of Dance (from March 30th to April 4th), the Lounge of Excellences (between March and April), the vocal lyrics Concerts of sacred music Cantate Mecum Domino edited by the Experimental Opera House (in April), some concerts edited by the association Omaggio all’Umbria (between April and May) including the one with the protagonist Uto Ughi and some Symphonic and Chamber Music Concerts by the Umbrian Philarmonic between May and June.
