The ironic fairy-tale production of the two operas by Ravel conceived by director Laurent Pelly in 2012 will be coming to La Scala from the Glyndebourne Festival. The extreme and thoughtful refinement of the L' Enfant et les Sortilèges, the libretto for which was prepared by Colette, and the sensual sharp-wittedness of L’Heure find a performer of natural affinity in Marc Minkowski, the popular conductor of Mozart’s Lucio Silla in 2015. And from the cast of Lucio Silla, there will also be a return by mezzosoprano Marianne Crebassa, who already won over the Milanese audience in the past.
