La Scala reopens the Fall Season 2020
Yesterday, on July 27th the new schedule for the Teatro alla Scala has been published. At the opening on September 12th, the orchestra will play Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony directed by Riccardo Cailly.
The fall schedule includes the operas La Traviata from September 15th to 18th and Aida from October 6th to 19th. Both operas are performed in concert form with star cast. In November, La Bohéme is added to the performance schedule. If the situation permits, it will be staged as an opera.
Roberto Bolle dances a “bolero at a distance” for ballet fans from September 23 to October 3. Another ballet is planned with Giselle. In addition, concerts and gala evenings, like with Anna Netrebko, Jonas Kaufmann and Placido Domingo.
The Teatro alla Scala will seat only 740 spectators. The balconies with four seats are offered as a whole. Distance is ensured in the parquet with empty spaces.
A highlight is the performance of Aida on October 6th. In 2017, a chest was opened in the birthplace of Giuseppe Verdi in Santa Agata. It included a sheet of music with a score consisting of 108 notes in 8 minutes. Verdi had planned this for the 4-part choir at the beginning of Act 3. This score will be performed for the first time on October 6th.
