MONTEVERDI MUSIC CRUISE
Le desiate acque di Claudio Monteverdi
Riding the wave of the successful past editions, Monteverdi Festival sets sail again, ready for the journey that Monteverdi undertook so many times between Cremona, Mantua and Venice. A new Music Cruise on the waterway connecting the Po river, the Mincio river and the Venetian Lagoon. A boating holiday to discover the region from an unusual visual, rhythmed by readings, the placid flowing of water and... good music (June 2-3).
