New Production! Riccardo Chailly's journey through the Italian repertoire, which in 2017 brought back Rossini's The Thieving Magpie, continues with Donizetti's first title Don Pasquale.

Davide Livermore's new production will see Ambrogio Maestri, the Falstaff par excellence of these years, take on the title role, another figure suspended between comedy and melancholy with the disillusion of time. With him, Rosa Feola, as Norina.

La Scala

Milan's famous Teatro alla Scala was inaugurated on 3 August 1778. Apart from its sheer beauty and size, La Scala's acoustics are said to be perfect. One of the leading opera and ballet theatres in the world, the venue is home to the La Scala Theatre Chorus, La Scala Theatre Ballet and La Scala Theatre Orchestra, as well as the La Scala Theatre Academy.
