Thanks to more than twenty years of experience on theatre, with productions always in relationship with music from classical to contemporary, including pop and rock, Controluce has signed shows, stagings and performances on music by Monteverdi, Purcell, Haendel, Cherubini, Mozart, Donizetti, Bellini, Verdi, Puccini, Mahler, Wolf ... and collaborated with musicians like Jordi Savall, Fabio Biondi, Mario Brunello, Kate Bush, Vinicio Capossela, Elio, Perturbazioni and many others.
