British opera director Graham Vick, who worked for the world’s major theaters, has died in London. He was 67 years old. For some time, he had health problems so much so that he had to give up directing the Ballo in Maschera that will open the Verdi Festival in Parma, which will be dedicated to him.

In 1987 Vick founded the Birmingham Opera Company, of which he has been artistic director until now, but over the years he has also staged operas at the Glyndebourne, the Royal Opera House of London, La Scala, the Met in New York, the Salzburg Festival, La Fenice and many more.

« Graham Vick was one of the most significant figures in contemporary directing, a master capable of revealing the power of the scores he staged and rediscovering their ability to question and move the audience. » This is how the Teatro alla Scala in Milan paid tribute today to the English director.
