Official Event Listing
  • A beautifully crafted, cinematic vision! An incandescent reading of the score, conducted with vitality and drive. Atmospheric details whizzed into view with the clinical eloquence of a soundtrack. Yusif Eyvazov won the hearts of the loggionisti.

New Production! Your invitation to the star-studded gala opening of the La Scala season, with David di Donatello award-winning filmmaker Mario Martone’s new staging of Giordano’s verismo masterpiece. First baptized at La Scala in 1896, this tale of liberty and love in the French revolution hasn’t been on the famous stage in over 30 years!

Maestro Riccardo Chailly will conduct Anna Netrebko in her role debut as Maddalena, alongside her husband Yusif Eyvazov as the titular poet.
