Spoleto Festival USA

May-June
Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Gian Carlo Menotti founded the Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto, Italy, in 1958, and brought it to Charleston, South Carolina, under the name Spoleto USA in 1977. The annual 17-day international arts festival focuses on new works and productions, and routinely offers more than 100 events in opera, chamber music, symphonic concerts, theater, dance, and art. In recent years, the festival has also offered jazz and other newer musical performances.
