Francesco Cilea’s most famous opera is enjoying new popularity and esteem, winning over a new generation of operagoers. Although noted for legendary interpretations by the most venerated sopranos — Mafalda Favero, Renata Tibaldi, Clara Petrella, Mirella Freni, and Daniela Dessi — it has been absent from the Teatro alla Scala programme since 2007. It now returns in the production originally directed by David McVicar for the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. The outstanding Italian conductor Giampaolo Bisanti will be on the podium to lead today’s finest stage talents.
