Italian conductor Angelo Campori (*1934) has died at the age of 79. Though relatively unknown in foreign countries, he was well known in Italy for his close connection with ‘Teatro Regio’ in Parma and with the Verona Arena. Fabio Luisi tweeted about Campori’s death: « Maestro Campori was one of the last Italian conductors who knew exactly what Italian opera means and how to conduct it, supporting the singers, understanding the big picture of an opera, feeling the true intentions of the composers. »
