Ravenna Jazz 2020 • Preview
Dante Alighieri Theatre - Via Mariani, 2
Dates: from 07/05/2020 to 16/05/2020

In its 47th edition, Ravenna Jazz 2020 will go on stage again from 7 to 16 May with the XL-format used in the previous editions. Ten days full of events will see full participation and amusement: evening concerts at the Dante Alighieri Theatre as well as involving and innovative performances throughout the several clubs of the city. The festival has already anticipated two events for which pre-sale tickets are already available.

The event is part of Crossroads, the travelling festival of Regione Emilia-Romagna.
The programme is still in the planning stage


Saturday 9 May

Pat Metheny "Side-Eye"

An unconventional icon of the guitar such as Pat Metheny: the trio puts into the spotlight a new format with a cast in rotation around the leader's guitar. 

Saturday 10 May

Que sera, sera Homage to Doris Day
Dante Alighieri Theatre
Italian Jazz Orchestra; special guests Petra Magoni  voice; Paolo Fresu trumpet; conductor Fabio Petretti; Achille Succi alto sax, bass clarinet; Marco Postacchini  bari sax, flute; Daniele Giardina trumpet; Massimo Morganti trombone, euphonium, arrangements; Michele Francesconi piano, arrangements; Paolo Ghetti electric bass, bass; Stefano Paolini drums; Cesare Carretta, Fabio Lapi, Gioele Sindona Michela Zanotti, Aldo Capicchioni, Elisa Tremamunno violins; Aldo Zangheri viola; Anselmo Pelliccioni cello: Roberto Rubini bass

Two stars of Italian music will perform the songs of "America's sweetheart": Paolo Fresu and Petra Magoni. They are an unusual match that highlights the features of both: on the one hand the lyrical blow of Fresu's trumpet and on the other Magoni's amazing and intense singing. Behind the artists, on the background, a video with unreleased material will be projected: images, fragments of films, concerts, specials of Doris Day, recalling the prominent moments of her career.
