Mayor Mario Conte: Here at the Teatro Del Monaco you can breathe a fantastic air. Treviso wants to restart from the opera music that has always brought up the name of the city through extraordinary performers. I am happy and excited: in these days, musical talents will perform for this competition that can become - and will surely be - an opportunity and a life experience. It is also a great honor to have a commission composed of internationally renowned artists who will surely know how to enhance the best performers. Given the level of the participants, they will have a very difficult task.
It promises to be a record edition for the 49th Toti Dal Monte, which thanks to the work of the Municipal Administration and the Stabile del Veneto has been reborn - comments Stefano Canazza. - Among the novelties, in addition to the high number of competitors, also the Final Round that for the first time will take place with a symphony orchestra to accompany the finalists.
