Ravinia Festival artist Gianandrea Noseda, currently the Music Director of the Teatro Regio Torino, will appear at the New York Stock Exchange Live on today's edition of Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo on CNBC at about 4:45PM EDT (3:45PM CST).
Maestro Noseda, one of Italy's highest profile cultural ambassadors, will discuss the situation facing Italian cultural institutions during the Eurozone's fiscal crisis, including his Teatro Regio Torino. The Teatro Regio Torino is internationally recognized as one of the world's great opera houses and has a rich history including having been led by Toscanini; the legendary conductor gave the world premiere of Puccini's La bohème at the Teatro Regio Torino in 1896.
Maestro Noseda, 47, is in New York leading critically acclaimed performances of Macbeth at the Metropolitan Opera. The New York Times said of the March 15, 2012 premiere: "The highlight of the night was the conducting: Gianandrea Noseda led a briskly paced and taut interpretation and the orchestra sounded in top form...Mr. Noseda illuminated the many subtleties and imaginative touches of Verdi's score." Musical America continued "On the podium Gianandrea Noseda molds the score to bring out a maximum of lyrical intensity and dramatic energy -- Verdi conducting doesn't come much better than this." The Associated Press concluded, "Noseda, music director of the Teatro Regio in Turin, Italy, drew a propulsive and energized sound from the orchestra..."
