Notes on the performancesOpen 
The themes of struggle against the oppressor and love for one’s homeland, both dear to Verdi, feature in his early opera Attila (1846). In the libretto, the formidable King of the Huns, who spares neither man nor woman, falls in love with the brave Odabella, who kills him to avenge the death of her father and the end of the family line.

Directing this new production by Gabriele Lavia is Nicola Luisotti, music director of San Francisco Opera, in his La Scala debut.
