NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCES
After Verdi’s bittersweet comedy Falstaff, the 2016/2017 Season presents the high comedy of Wagner: an opportunity to listen to one of the most acclaimed interpretations of Daniele Gatti, committed to drawing attention to the chamber music weft of a brilliant and extremely refined score. Contributing to the musical harvest is a stupendous cast bringing together Michael Volle, the foremost Sachs of our day, and Markus Werba as Beckmesser. The performance is directed by Harry Kupfer, the grand old man of German theatre, who recently regaled audiences at La Scala with Der Rosenkavalier, while the scenery by Hans Schavernoch recreates the atmosphere of the ancient city without taking refuge in simple figurative reproduction.

Lord Percy / Piero Pretti
Enrico / Carlo Colombara
Lord Rocheford / Mattia Denti
Sir Hervey / Giovanni Sala*
*Student of the Teatro alla Scala Academy

NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCES
After its inauguration in 2016 with the noted return of Verismo represented by Giordano’s La cena delle beffe, the project to bring the Italian repertoire back to La Scala in its entirety continues in 2017 with two bel canto titles: Anna Bolena by Donizetti and La gazza ladra by Rossini. Incidentally, Teatro alla Scala had only one production by Donizetti before now, L’elisir d’amore. Taking to the podium for Anna Bolena is Ion Marin in a show with a modern slant, but with period costumes, by Marie-Louise Bischofberger. The very young Federica Lombardi makes her debut in the demanding role of Anna: she is an example of how La Scala continues to invest in the talent emerging from its Academy. Jane Seymour will be played by Sonia Ganassi.

 




LA TRAVIATA
Giuseppe Verdi

March 3, 5, 9, 11, 14

 



Teatro alla Scala Chorus and Orchestra
Teatro alla Scala Production
Running Time: 03 hours 18 minutes intermissions included


Conductor / Nello Santi
Staging / Liliana Cavani
Sets / Dante Ferretti
Costumes / Gabriella Pescucci
Lights / Marco Filibeck

CAST
Violetta / Valery    Ailyn Perez (28 feb.; 3, 5 mar.) - Anna Netrebko (9, 11, 14 mar.)
Flora Bervoix / Chiara Isotton
Giorgio Germont / Leo Nucci
Alfredo Germont / Francesco Meli
Barone Douphol / Costantino Finucci
Marchese D'Obigny / Abramo Rosalen
Dottor Grenvil / Alessandro Spina

NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCES
The staging is the lavish Liliana Cavani production with scenery by Dante Ferretti with which Verdi’s masterpiece returned to La Scala in 1990 conducted by Riccardo Muti. The leading lady is Anna Netrebko, the most highly acclaimed soprano of the present, who has already triumphed in two First Nights at La Scala: on 7 December 2011 in Donna Anna with Daniel Barenboim and in 2015 in Giovanna d’Arco with Riccardo Chailly. Today she has all the necessary maturity to portray the courtesan in all three stages of her passion. She will alternate with Ailyn Perez. The orchestra will be conducted by Nello Santi, a custodian of the most authentic Italian tradition, who has only conducted at La Scala once before, in 1971. Completing a marvellous cast is Francesco Meli as Alfredo and the great Leo Nucci as Giorgio Germont.

Shen Yun 2017

March 11, 12, 13


 

Shen Yun: Connecting Heaven & Earth
There was a time when the world was full of magic and splendor, and all on Earth existed in harmony with Heaven. You could see it in the arts, feel it in the air, and hear it in the beat of a drum. This was a land of heroes and sages, dragons and phoenixes, emperors and immortals. Known today as China, this place was once called "the Land of the Divine."
What if you could journey back and visit this lost paradise?
Shen Yun brings the profound spirit of this lost civilization to life on stage with unrivaled artistic mastery. Every dance movement, every musical note, makes this a stunning visual and emotional experience you won’t find anywhere else. Banned in communist China today, the non-profit Shen Yun is dedicated to reviving 5,000 years of civilization.
