In celebration of its 800th anniversary, the University of Padua again collaborates with the OperaEstate summer festival. The annual summer event began in 1981 in the Vincenzo province of Bassano del Grappa as a multidisciplinary festival of dance, theatre, music, and artistic performances of great national and international interest.

The 2022 festival welcomes three writers and three dancers gathered in a common space of wonder. Their performances are a dialogue that explores how the art of speech and dance come together in music and rhythm surrounded by nature and architecture. Illuminated by the changing natural light of site-specific spaces in the Botanical Garden, the audience creates its own perspective that becomes an integral part of the three performances: Che è bellezzaDi ramo in ramo and Crepa.

Tickets are 5 euros each and available online or at the OperaEstate Festival Box Office Monday to Friday from 10 am-1 pm / 3 pm – 6 pm, Saturdays from 10 am- 1 pm or by phone at +39 0424 524214.

Admission is free, upon reservation, for some visitors: children up to 5 years; UniPD students and staff; people with disabilities and an accompanying caregiver; journalists; tour guides, and Botanical Garden members.

The outdoor event takes place on the lawn in front of the greenhouses of the Biodiversity Garden that will remain open throughout the evening. In case of inclement weather, the performance will be held on Friday, July 29.

The event is organized in collaboration with the OperaEstate Festival and the celebrations of the 800th anniversary of the University of Padua, as the Botanical Garden offers the Summertime in the Garden series of events that highlights the University’s dedication to Freedom.  Libera la Natura (Free Nature) offers the public a ‘live’ viewing of the Botanical Garden and its collection, sharing secrets of the plant world from this unique location and UNESCO World Heritage Site.
