(b 1951 )

Born in Turin, where he studied at the Conservatory and later took a degree in aesthetics at the university with a thesis on John Cage, the Italian composer Lorenzo Ferrero has interested himself in electronic research. He has been particularly active in the field of opera, serving as consultant to the Puccini Festival at Torre del Lago and then, from 1991 to 1994, as artistic director of the Arena di Verona.

Stage Works

Ferrero’s operas range from his quasi-melodrama Rimbaud to a puppet opera, Le Bleu-blanc-rouge et le noir, based on a work by Anthony Burgess, combining Italian operatic tradition with a more eclectic modernism.

Orchestral Music

Ferrero’s orchestral music includes a cycle of six symphonic poems, La nueva España (‘New Spain’), which traces the progress of the conquistadors in the subjugation of the ancient civilisations of South America.
