The Museums, Palazzo Ducale, the Theatres, the Lighthouse, the Aquarium , Porto Antico (the Old Port): the cultural and entertainment offer of Genoa for  New Year’s Eve is rich and valuable also this year. There will be no street events, as in the rest of Italy, and the appointments will take place  in compliance with the safety measures, but the city doesn’t give up on celebrating the beginning of 2022.

For access procedures, please consult the in-depth pages of each structure.

NEW YEAR'S EVE AT THE THEATER

The happy widow Carlo Felice Theater - 31 December at 3pm

It is the most famous and loved of operettas, a title that has now become a synthesis of an era and, at the same time, a thermometer of the times to come. The direction of the show is entrusted to Luca Micheletti, actor, director, singer (he will also play the role of Count Danilo), a young artist of exceptional completeness already on the way to becoming one of the leading names in Italian musical and prose theater. The show will also see the debut in Genoa of the conductor Lorenzo Passerini, a talent on the podium of just twenty-nine. Female protagonist, in the role of Hanna Glawari, Elisa Balbo. Scenes and costumes by Leila Fteita.

 

Made in S.Olcese (The Suinicon Valley)

Maurizio Lastrico Politeama Genovese Theater - 31 December: 8 pm and 10.30 pm

After a year of television and film sets, Maurizio returns home: his Zena and his habitat, the theater. An ad hoc set-up for the Christmas holidays: a journey to the Genoa of the future aboard an imaginary subway that will reach La Guardia or Torriglia. A jump from hendecasyllables to the Ligurian dialect, between unpublished pieces and great classics, to tell, at each stop, insights into our grumbling life. Perhaps the best gift you can get: two hours of laughs after so much pain! On the other hand, irony and self-irony are our typical products like focaccia and pesto.

 

New Year's show. New year in Stradanuova 2022

Stradanuova Teatro Auditorium - December 31st at 10pm

New Year in Stradanuova: Pandolce VS Panettone - Cabaret challenge between Genoa and Milan. On the corner for Genoa: Alessandro Bianchi and Andrea Carlini. On the corner for Milan: Omar Fantini and Nando Timoteo. Better the metropolis or the metropolitan city? Better the moped or the SUV? Better the cliffs or the Po Valley, pasta with pesto or saffron risotto, the sea or the municipal swimming pool? In short, what is best to celebrate to close the year: the Genoese Pandolce or the Milanese Panettone?!
At the end of the show at 10pm we will celebrate the arrival of 2022 together to wait for the new year with a smile!

 

Verse-by-verse (Versi-per-versi)

La Claque - December 31st at 10pm

The Fantastic Quokkas: celebrate New Year's Eve in LaClaque with "verse-by-verse". "Versi-per-versi" is a show that does not provide answers but that wants to share questions by putting in contact the generations that make up the social fabric like this cultural company whose protagonists are young people, supported by the experience and presence of senior actors, not to say of a certain age, not to say to be scrapped.

 

Superb Heroes

Garage Theater - December 31st at 9.30pm

New Year's Eve 2022 at the theater? Marco Rinaldi brings his new show to the stage: Superb Heroes, the great Genoese told in Zenéise in which he plays the role of the greatest characters in the history of the city.
