Giuseppe Raffa - Operama

It was born out of the inspiration of Italian orchestra conductor Maestro Giuseppe Raffa, who since the very beginning of his artistic career had wished to bring to larger and wider audiences the great Italian music tradition of opera.

Giuseppe Raffa is an Italian born musician and entrepreneur of rare refinement and elegance in style. A passionate and talented orchestra conductor, and energetic artistic producer, he has been defined by His colleagues as "the revolutionary innovator of concept stage".

He has studied at Music conservatory of Milan "Giuseppe Verdi"; specifically composition studies under Bruno Bettinelli and orchestra conducting with Mario Gusella. He then undertook specialization studies at the "Accademia Chigiana" with Franco Ferrara  and in Paris with Pierre Deveaux.

Maestro Giuseppe Raffa, a real precursor of times who proved his versatility and inventiveness, and a man of ingenious entrepreneurship, coined the slogan that defines his vision “Aida Opera Spectacular! Operama "Opera  for the people!”

By realizing such an unconventional and futuristic vision, Maestro Raffa opened the door to a new and extraordinary form of classical entertainment. A new concept that enhances the traditional artistic value – innovative technologies have since been used enthusiastically in all theatres – while allowing broader audiences to experience what seemed to be exclusive to few ones and confined to small spaces.


PRETORIA - SUD AFRICA:

Raffa, whose personal epigram is that he "conducts and creates operatic spectacles for the people", has fulfilled Verdi's wish.
