In brief

Protagonist on the podium in a memorable edition of the opera presented in 2015 with the brilliant production directed by Robert Carsen, Daniele Gatti returns to the La Scala orchestra pit six years after he conducted his last opera. This time it will be Giuseppe Verdi’s Falstaff in the historical ‘Po Valley’ production created by Giorgio Strehler and Ezio Frigerio for the inauguration of the 1980-1981 Season, when it was Lorin Maazel on the podium. The most recent performance of this version, which transposes the adventures of the merry wives of Windsor to the sunset-gilded farms of the lower Po Valley, dates to 2004, when it was Riccardo Muti wielding the baton.
