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.

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.

NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCES
“The success was so enormous, the opera aroused such furore that at every moment the audiences stood up en masse to cover Rossini in acclaim.” Stendhal, a spectator at the Premiere at La Scala in 1817, described how “Rossini grew tired of bowing before the audience tired of applauding.” Two hundred years later, the eminent expert on Rossini Riccardo Chailly brings this celebrated tragicomic opera back to the stage where it was first performed. A masterpiece of grace and brilliance, it is also adept at describing the excesses of power without beating about the bush. Making his debut at La Scala for the occasion is Gabriele Salvatores: the director, co-founder of the Teatro dell’Elfo and Oscar winner in 1991 for “Mediterraneo” returns to the theatre to relate the story of the servant Ninetta, who is wrongly accused of theft. The cast brings together the cream of the new generation of Rossinian bel canto: with Rosa Feola debuting, we will hear the tenor Edgardo Rocha, basses Alex Esposito and Paolo Bordogna, as well as Teresa Iervolino and the expert canto of Michele Pertusi.
