Notes on performances

The elegant production by Luc Bondy with its eerie shadows, has always met with ovations from audiences ever since it began in 2009. The scenery by Richard Peduzzi lacks something of the touristy Rome of Puccini’s masterpiece, but it expressively characterizes its ecclesiastical-sensual hue. The French mezzosoprano Béatrice Uria Monzon will introduce Milan to a new role from her vast repertoire, and the triangle doomed to a tragic fate is completed by the experienced Baron Scarpia played by Želiko Lučić. The conductor is Carlo Rizzi.
