The Lombardo Music Publishing Firm today and the new companies of operetta

Today, Italian operetta may be seen in many theatres worldwide. In Italy, numerous operetta companies have sprung up, and as they tour the countryside, they appear in festivals such as The Summer Operetta Festival of Palermo, and they appear on the bills of major theatres, bringing with them a joyous spirit and the marvelous multi-colored world of operetta.

Certainly the most famous festival is The Trieste Operetta Festival. Trieste is a favoured spot to devotees of operetta, if for no other reason than the presence of Mario Nordio, who is the first and best-loved translator of Lehàr. The Trieste festival has flourished thanks to the generosity of Fulvio Gilleri, and artistic director Gianni Gori. Gilleri has been very partial to our operettas, and Gori’s taste runs more to the international.

Also in Trieste, the Civic Theatre Museum "C. Schmidl" is a bountiful source of news about operetta, with historical reviews, playbills, photographs, chromo-lithographed editions of music and libretti: in short, its collections span the entire history of operetta.

Finally, we cannot forget Sandro Massimini, the great actor and director who has made a fundamental contribution to the popularization of operetta, and who has brought the charm of light opera and musical theatre to a whole new generation.
