will be premiered in Korea. Among Verdi’s operas, it has the most famous and grand overture. This piece, which was commissioned for the Great Exposition in France to celebrate its opening, was not welcomed in France as it deals with the Sicilian Vespers, in which about 3,000 French were massacred. However, it is a historically meaningful piece. In the 13th century, Sicily could no longer withstand the harsh rule of France and broke out a rebellion, which begun at the sound of the vesper bell on Easter in 1282, resulting in triumph over unjust invasion. It is a five-act opera with a lasting imagery of patriotism. It is conducted by Maestro Hong Seokwon, known for his soft charisma, and directed by Fabio Ceresa, beloved for his unique interpretation in KNO’s 2016 production of .
