NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE

To conclude the season, La Scala presents Ti vedo, ti sento, mi perdo, commissioned from Salvatore Sciarrino together with the Staatsoper Unter der Linden of Berlin. Sciarrino, one of the most appreciated contemporary composers and one of the most performed worldwide, has an overriding passion for Italian music from 1500 to 1600. While Carlo Gesualdo was among the sources of inspiration for the highly successful Luci mie traditrici (1998), the focal point of the new opera is the tragic life of Alessandro Stradella (1639 – 1682). Unlike his numerous predecessors, inspired above all by the fictional aspects of the figure of the composer (they include Flotow and Franck), Sciarrino chooses not to bring him on stage and to evoke him solely through the music. The staging is entrusted to Jürgen Flimm and Gudrun Hartmann, who have long-standing artistic and personal relations with Sciarrino, and the baton will be wielded by the young Maxime Pascal, winner of the Nestlé award and conductor of the Orchestra Le Balcon in Paris, dedicated to the music of today. After the success of CO2 by Giorgio Battistelli, La Scala resumes its custom of proposing a contemporary title every year, preferably as a world premiere.
