Academy Project
 
Teatro alla Scala Chorus and Orchestra
Teatro alla Scala, Royal Opera House - Covent Garden of London, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Gran Teatre de Liceu of Barcelona Production
Running Time: 2 hours 40 minutes intermission included


ABOUT  THE PERFORMANCE
Unanimously considered to be an authority on the Italian repertoire, Nello Santi is closely linked to Nabucco, of which he is one of the most accredited interpreters. The revival of the staging by Daniele Abbado sees the role of Abigaille played by Anna Pirozzi, in her second Verdi title at La Scala after I due Foscari, and by Martina Serafin, while the leading role is once again played by Leo Nucci. Stefano La Colla returns as Ismaele, after appearing as Calaf in the Turandot that opened the six-month Expo season, conducted by Riccardo Chailly; and Mikhail Petrenko, one of the most interesting bass voices of recent years, makes his La Scala debut in the role of Zaccaria.

DER FREISCHÜTZ
Carl Maria von Weber

Teatro alla Scala Chorus and Orchestra
New Teatro alla Scala Production
Running Time: 2 hours 40 minutes intermission included
FIRST AND SECOND ACT: 85 minutes / Intermission: 30 minutes / THIRD ACT: 45 minutes



ABOUT  THE PERFORMANCE
A founding text of German operatic Romanticism and an absolute masterpiece of musical theatre, Der Freischütz by Carl Maria von Weber has not been performed at La Scala since 1998, when it was conducted by Donald Runnicles, but it is worthwhile remembering above all the 1955 edition with Carlo Maria Giulini on the podium. Today, Weber’s sinister fairy tale plot is unravelled by Myung-Whun Chung, who was Giulini’s most illustrious pupil, together with a first-rate cast that includes Julia Kleiter as Agathe and Günther Groissböck playing the demonic role of Kaspar, while Micheal König offers his Heldentenor to the character of Max. The new production is by Matthias Hartmann, who previously directed the Burgtheater in Vienna and is active as an opera director in Vienna, Zurich and Paris.

ABOUT  THE PERFORMANCE
Among the most important innovations of last Season was the creation of a Baroque ensemble within the La Scala orchestra under the supervision of the esteemed specialist Diego Fasolis. His test bench was Il trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno, an oratorio in staged form which will be followed in 2017 by one of Handel’s great operas: Tamerlano, written for the Royal Academy of Music in 1724 and performed for the first time at the King’s Theatre that year. The opera brings to the stage the love competition between the king of the Tartars and his ally Andronico (played by Bejun Mehta and Franco Fagioli, two of the greatest countertenors of our day, both making their debut at La Scala) for Asteria (Maria Grazia Schiavo), the daughter of the prisoner, the Ottoman Emperor Bajazet (Plácido Domingo, who returns to the tenor register). The production marks the La Scala debut of one of the most important Italian directors, Davide Livermore, manager and artistic director of Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia di Valencia.

ABOUT  THE PERFORMANCE
A bored young aristocrat, as a joke, spurns the maiden he later recognises as the true love of his life; but by then it is too late. After an absence of five years, John Cranko’s Onegin, a perfect example of modern “drama in dance”, returns to La Scala. Inspired by the novel in verse by Alexander Pushkin and reinterpreted with mastery and sensitivity by John Cranko, this great tale of ill-fated love is narrated through pas de deux with extraordinary expressive power, precision-sculpted characters and a splendid showcase of company numbers.
The score of the ballet, orchestrated by Cranko’s trusted collaborator Kurt-Heinz Stolze, is entirely based on Tchaikovsky’s music, but contains not a single note from his opera Eugene Onegin. The arrangement and the orchestration of the pieces were conceived in relation to their dramatic expressiveness, in line with the conception of the ballet as a complete theatrical performance, where the ability to reinvent a written story and narrate it purely in dance terms reveals the wonderful freedom in Cranko’s dramatic and choreographic development.
