NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE

 

Lorenzo Viotti, appointed conductor of the Amsterdam Opera at thirty years of age and already a feature of the seasons of the great European orchestras, will make his operatic debut at La Scala with a masterpiece of the French repertoire (his mother tongue) and an outstanding cast in which the stars Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo, here in one of their signature roles, are joined by the darlings of the La Scala audience Mattia Olivieri and Sara Mingardo, and by Marina Viotti, named Young Singer of the Year at the International Opera Awards 2019. Bartlett Sher’s production, featuring a traditional set design and a modern approach to acting, was already appreciated at La Scala in 2011.
