UN GIORNO DI REGNO

Giuseppe Verdi

Event details

29 June – 22 July 2024

The first of Verdi’s two comedic operas finally takes its rightful place on the Garsington stage having been part of the cancelled 2020 Season. This light-hearted comedy features an impressive virtuosic vocal score sung by an international cast and large chorus of our renowned Young Artists.

A tale of thwarted love and mistaken and assumed identities, this comedy revolves around an ordinary man becoming “King for a Day”. The use of his new power to disentangle some unhappy betrothals results in a maelstrom of madness and delusional behaviour filling the story with twists and turns. Despite Verdi’s youth, his dramatic skills in portraying characters that vividly come to life shines through, along with his mastery of rhythmic vitality, feeling for light and shade and glorious use of the voice.

Conducting the Philharmonia Orchestra will be Tobias Ringborg, last seen at Garsington Opera conducting Così fan tutte (2022). Acclaimed director Christopher Alden makes his Garsington Opera debut.

Joshua Hopkins sings Rossini

Canadian Baritone Joshua Hopkins makes his Garsington Opera and role debut in this virtuosic comedy bringing his “glistening, malleable baritone of exceptional beauty” to our stage.

As a prominent leading artist throughout the US and Canada, Joshua can be seen here performing Figaro’s iconic aria “Largo al Factotum” in Il barbiere di Siviglia with Opéra de Rouen.

Madison Leonard in Der Rosenkavalier

Madison returns to our stage after capturing audiences with her “exquisite” performance as Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier in 2021.

A rising star on the international stage, here is a reminder of her performance in Der Rosenkavalier with “The Presentation of the Rose” with Hanna Hipp and the Philharmonia Orchestra under the baton of Jordan de Souza.
