Marja, Filippo, Maggie, Massimo, Marco, Federico and Nadine, common yet extraordinary people, each with their own passionate connection to a very demanding lover: the Arena of Verona. Faces you meet among the 2000-strong crowd working behind the scenes of the biggest opera theatre in the world, a temple to tradition. Their duty is to walk on stage once again, on a very special occasion: the Centenary's season debut in a new version made for the third millennium of Verdi's Aida, by the Spanish avant-garde geniuses Fura dels Baus. Between innovation and tradition, from the winter selections for the chorus members to the much-anticipated summer premiere, the everyday social and professional events in our heroes' lives mark the progressive completion of a magical world. An enjoyable balance between life on stage and behind the scenes, private life and public show, sacred enactment and secular entertainment, MAGICARENA reveals the art of Opera like never seen before.
