14/02/2020

HOTEL SAVOY PARTNERS WITH TEATRO DEL MAGGIO MUSICALE IN FLORENCE TO CELEBRATE THE ITALIAN PREMIERE OF A UNIQUE OPERA PERFORMACE BY MARINA ABRAMOVIĆ

On the occasion of the 83rd edition of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Festival, Hotel Savoy, a Rocco Forte Hotel in Florence, is pleased to launch the package “7 Deaths of Maria Callas by Marina Abramovic” with music by Marko Nikodijević, which features an unforgettable opera performance with the renowned Serbian artist on Saturday 6 June 2020.

Marina Abramović, one of the most acclaimed figures in contemporary art, returns to Florence to pay tribute to Callas’s legacy by reinterpreting seven of the soprano’s on-stage deaths in her most iconic roles including Tosca, Carmen, and Madam Butterfly, ending the show with the “final” death of Callas herself. Abramović idolised Callas from a young age shedding light on their similarities as young artists who both suffered from tumultuous relationships with their mothers as well as broken hearts. This performance continues to highlight Abramović’s ongoing relationship with Italy. One that has played a significant role in her life and in the development of her art.

Guests who book this operatic overnight stay package at Hotel Savoy between 4th and 8th June 2020, will take part in an unforgettable cultural experience and have exclusive access to the afternoon show in one of the world’s newest opera houses in existence. Also included is a VIP welcome amenity upon arrival in a stylish room or suite, and a 5-course tasting menu at the hotel’s authentic yet contemporary Tuscan bistro, Irene. Don’t miss out this limited time offer to enjoy a performance in one of the most esteemed theatres in Italy while basking in the artistic glory of Florence.
