Before each performance, Franco Pulcini will hold an introduction to the opera at the A. Toscanini Boxes Foyer. The meetings will start 45 minutes before the beginning of each performance and the entrance is reserved to the audience with the ticket for the performance.
György Kurtág, whose compositions left an indelible mark on the development of twentieth-century music, had never written an opera. At least, not until he had turned ninety. Applying his bare, concentrated, intensely expressive style to Samuel Beckett’s 1957 classic, the scope of this composition goes beyond the world of music, extending also to the territories of theatre and literature. The world premiere will be conducted by Markus Stenz and directed by Pierre Audi, who makes his début at La Scala with this production. Engaging in an extraordinary work that lingers on the minimal nuances of text and music, the cast includes Frode Olsen, Leigh Melrose, Hilary Summers and Leonardo Cortellazzi.
