This "spirited and witty" EUR" in the words of Germany's top daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung EUR" new production of Vincenzo Bellini's La sonnambula dazzles with its lovingly detailed and imaginative sets which reproduce a Swiss alpine resort in the 1930s. Complete with a majestic mountain panorama, cable car, post-bus and grand salon, not to mention the colorfully dressed resort guests, set designer Massimo Checchetto deploys an enchanting picture book of visual surprises. Premiered in Milan on 6 March 1831, La sonnambula is widely regarded as the composer's first true masterpiece.
