There is more than just the Italian repertoire in Riccardo Chailly’s heart, and over the years he has gained a wealth of experience in the operatic and symphonic field that is almost unparalleled in its variety, confirming his tireless curiosity as a musician. For his first Strauss at La Scala, the Music Director has picked Damiano Michieletto as director, Paolo Fantin for the sets and Carla Teti for the costumes: a team that in years of constant presence in all the major European theatres and festivals has managed to throw off the
superficial label of enfants terribles and impose itself as a landmark of contemporary
directing, combining visual impact and dramaturgical depth. There are great expectations for the cast, which alongside the protagonist Malin Byström, fresh from her triumph in London in the same role, includes Michael Volle as Jochanaan, Anna Maria Chiuri as Herodias and Roberto Saccà as Herodes.
