Opera: Lo Schiaccianoci, Tchaikovsky
"The return of the Moscow Ballet La Classique at the Politeama Theatre of Trieste with “The Nutcracker” has been an episode of pure and playful poetry. This year too the conductor of the Coccia Theatre Orchestra of Novara was Maestro Silvia Casarin Rizzolo. The young director from Venice showed particular care in the elegance of musical phrasing and sound, but also in keeping concentration on the interpretation of the score, endowing it in several moments with such intensity as to put music in the foreground instead of dance".
