Teatro alla Scala expands its contemporary repertory by presenting for the first time one of the most famous and frequently performed operas by Thomas Adès. Putting the magical arts of Prospero, the betrayed Duke of Milan, to music, The Tempest premieres in Italy at La Scala in the imagerich production of Robert Lepage, whose stage sets allude precisely to Piermarini’s loges. A unique experience in sound and vision that gives us great reason to believe in the future of opera.
