Opening Night of the new Season 2023/2024

Every year on December 7th, the day of Sant’Ambrose, the patron saint of Milan, the season of La Scala opens, an event of global importance. The schedule for the 2024 season was announced at the Teatro alla Scala press conference on May 29.

On the Opening Night, December 7, the Verdi opera Don Carlos is on the program, a new production under the direction of the renowned conductor Riccardo Chailly and with a star cast.

Philip II, King of Spain, is performed by the famous bass René Pape and Don Carlo, the Infante of Spain, by the talented tenor Francesco Meli.

The masterful baritone Luca Salsi takes on the role of Rodrigo, the Marquis of Posa.

Elisabeth von Valois, Queen of Spain, is played by two outstanding sopranos: Anna Netrebko and Maria José Siri. Anna Netrebko can be admired in other operas in the season.
