NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE
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.
