La Gazza Ladra

Main Auditorium 2000 (S) - Tuesday 18 Apr 2017, 19:00


LIVE from La Scala Milan

200 years after the success of Rossini’s La Gazza Ladra, where one spectator during the Premiere at La Scala in 1817 described that the opera “aroused such furore that at every moment the audiences stood up en masse to cover Rossini in acclaim,” Riccardo Chailly now brings this celebrated tragicomic opera back to the stage where it was first performed.

A masterpiece of grace and brilliance, La Gazza Ladra is adept at describing the excesses of power without prevaricating. In this production, the director and co-founder of the Teatro dell’Elfo and Oscar winner for Mediterraneo makes his debut at La Scala to elegantly 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, tenor Edgardo Rocha,basses Alex Esposito and Paolo Bordogna, as well as Teresa Lervolino and the expert bel canto of Michele Pertusi. Sung in Italian with English Subtitles,
