Due to a sudden illness, Mirco Palazzi is forced to cancel the two performances of L'italiana in Algeri on 10 and 13 September. Teatro alla Scala would like to thank Carlo Lepore that will sing the role of Mustafà.



An opera buffa opens this autumn's Rossini triptych with Jean-Pierre Ponnelle's classic production of L'Italiana in Algeri. Claudio Abbado chose it for the opening night of the 1973-74 La Scala season, the only time the theatre has honoured Milan's patron saint day (St. Ambrose, 7 December) in a comic vein. The new performance is directed by Grischa Asagaroff, who was once Ponnelle's assistant, with Ottavio Dantone on the podium. The stellar cast features the La Scala debut of the French mezzo-soprano Gaëlle Arquez alongside Mirco Palazzi as Mustafà.
