Teatro Regio Torino


Teatro Regio was established in 1740 in Torino as the theatre of the Savoy court. With the end of the 1800's seeing a period of great prestige in the presence of Arturo Toscanini and world premieres of two masterpieces by Giacomo Puccini: Manon Lescaut and La bohème.

In 1936, a fire destroyed the old Theatre. Rebuilt by Carlo Mollino, it was inaugurated in 1973 with I Vespri sicilani directed by Maria Callas. The new Teatro Regio, characterised by an exclusive curvilinear design, is equipped with one of the largest stages in Europe and advanced technology.

The Regio is the most important productive and organisational cultural centre of the region. The primary commitment of the Theatre is the Opera and Ballet Season, which is combined with a Symphony Season. Regular guest appearances by the world's most important ballet companies and a full program of activities for the schools involves more than 50,000 young people every year.

In recent years, the production output of the Theatre has increased considerably in terms of both quantity and quality, ensuring the Regio's undisputed role in the foreground of the international artistic scene. This is demonstrated by the many co-productions with major European institution, important tours abroad and its record audiences.
