The 2022-23 season of the Roman Philharmonic Academy, signed by the artistic director Enrico Dindo, presents itself with a wide proposal, for an audience of all ages and for all tastes, displacing its programming between Teatro Argentina for the concerts of chamber music with international soloists and ensembles, the Olympic Theater for dance and shows, the Sala Casella for specific projects and reviews.
