NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE
Born of his passion for Puccini, Riccardo Chailly’s journey through historic operas revisited in the light of contemporary musicological research features an exciting new entry. Following the premiere of Turandot with a new finale by Luciano Berio, La fanciulla del West with its original orchestration and the first version of Madama Butterfly, this season the earliest version of Manon Lescaut – which debuted in Turin in 1893 – comes to the stage of La Scala. Standing out among the many differences is the final concertato of the first act, omitted from the opera before its 1894 premiere at La Scala, in which Puccini shows off his stunning orchestral virtuosity.
