Notes on the performancesOpen 
A return, a debut for La Scala and a world Premiere: Alexei Ratmansky opens the new Ballet season with the originality of its style presented over three pieces. Awarded by Danza&Danza as the best classical production of 2012, the return is that of Concerto DSCH: poetry, virtuosity and profound musicality, with which Ratmansky captures, in a lively choreography, the essence of Shostakovich’s music. The Scala debut is Russian Seasons, which blends with grace and energy the classical technique and choreographic features inspired by the folklore of Russian tradition. The first production for the New York City Ballet (2006), which was conceived from the eponymous score by Leonid Desyatnikov, crosses the seasons and the Russian Orthodox calendar in twelve sections for a string orchestra, solo violin and female voice. The crowning moment of the evening is Opera, the new choreographic and musical creation, constructed specifically for La Scala’s dancers, on the score by Leonid Desyatnikov, who is considered by many to the most famous living Russian composer.
