After the recent revivals of La gazza ladra and La Cenerentola, La Scala is producing a new staging of Rossini’s comic masterpiece, which was first performed here in 1814 and
was resurrected thanks to Franco Zeffirelli’s staging in 1955 with Maria Callas, to return
in 1997 conducted by Riccardo Chailly and directed by Giancarlo Cobelli. The production
is signed by Roberto Andò, a director of cinema, opera and prose, as well as an award-winning narrator. Diego Fasolis, who recently inaugurated the opera season of the LAC in Lugano with Il barbiere di Siviglia, tackles his first Rossini opera at La Scala after his success with Handel and Mozart, with a strong cast that combines belcanto expertise with a commanding presence on stage: Rosa Feola, Alex Esposito, Edgardo Rocha, Giulio Mastrototaro and Mattia Olivieri.
