Spoleto Festival USA

May 22 - June 7, 2015

Spoleto Festival USA was founded in 1977 as the American counterpart to the Festival dei Due Mondi (Festival of Two Worlds) in Spoleto, Italy. When Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Gian Carlo Menotti planned an American festival, he searched for an American city that would offer the charm of Spoleto, Italy, and also its wealth of theaters, churches, and other performance spaces. Charleston was the perfect counterpart. Spoleto Festival USA has maintained traditions of those first festivals such as a dedication to young artists, a fascination with contemporary effort, an enthusiasm for providing unusual performance opportunities to recognized masters in their fields, and a commitment to all the performing arts. Each year audience members experience a broad range of artistic styles and forms, including classical ballet; modern and post-modern dance; opera; chamber, symphonic, and choral music; jazz; theater; and the literary and visual arts. For 17 days each year, the arts become the most important activity in Charleston. More than 100 performances are offered each season by artists from around the world with as many as ten performances on any given day. In addition, Piccolo Spoleto, the city-organized companion festival, schedules another 200 events over the same period of time. Spoleto Festival USA has earned a reputation for offering programs of the highest artistic caliber, supporting new and innovative works, nurturing outstanding young artists, and expanding public appreciation of the arts. This focus has brought Spoleto international acclaim. Charlotte Street Cottage offers a private and luxurious home from which to walk to all Spoleto venues and the many fine Charleston restaurants.
