Raymonda

Teatro alla Scala Production

From 3 to 13 October 2012

Running Time: 3 hours 15 minutes intermissions included

Notes on the performancesOpen 
A new La Scala production in October 2011, this most faithful version of Raymonda to the original, which met with triumphant success in St Petersburg in 1898, returns for the 2011/2012 season. Based on a medieval legend, its libretto, featuring ladies-in-waiting, knights, crusaders and Saracens, castles and cathedrals, sparked the imagination of the young Alexander Glazunov, in his first ballet score, and the infinite wisdom of Petipa, who complemented it with an enormously rich and endless succession of classical variations, exotic dances and character dances, mime, lyrical pas de deux and a heavily featured corps de ballet, with a grandiose finale. Drawing on notation from the Harvard archives, original designs housed in the St Petersburg State Museum of Theatre and Theatre Library, La Scala presents the last great work from the glory days of the Imperial Ballet.

Friedemann Vogel and Olesia Novikova return in the principal roles.
