In brief

The second Puccini title in the composer’s death centennial year, Turandot marks the return with a work from the grand repertoire of Daniel Harding, notable for his revealing re-readings of the nineteenth- and twentieth-century Italian repertoire. The British conductor, new Music Director of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia, has a well-established artistic relationship with La Scala and its Orchestra dating back to 2005, when he conducted the opening performance of that season, Mozart’s Idomeneo. This new production is directed by Davide Livermore, who has staged numerous acclaimed operas at La Scala in recent years and inaugurated four seasons in a row. In the most recent reprises of the opera, which Puccini left unfinished, Riccardo Chailly chose for the first time at La Scala the finale composed by Luciano Berio; this new production will use the finale by Franco Alfano.
