  • Gorgeous... Not to be missed! Irresistible is the competition of sympathy, character and virtuosity between the fiery Rosa Feola and the two suitors Schrott and Mastrototaro.
    Angelo Foletto, LA REPUBLICCA
    Convincing. A great success. Feola confirms herself as an out of class soprano in all aspects - her Fiorilla transcends.
    Giovanni Botta, OPERACLICK

Opera buffa in two acts (1814)

New Production! Rossini’s witty tragicomedy of love, lust, marriage and mistaken identity has a rich La Scala history, having premiered at the theatre in 1814 before being famously reprised in 1954 by Gavazzeni with Callas, and most recently in 1997 by Chailly with Devia.

For this magnificent new production that draws inspiration from Italo Calvino, award-winning stage and film director Roberto Andò and conductor Diego Fasolis assemble a strong cast, led by delightful soprano Rosa Feola as the ’capricious, but honest’ Donna Fiorilla, bored of married life, and Erwin Schrott as the Turkish Prince who catches her eye...

The story swerves from laugh-out-loud humour to darker intrigue, and Rossini’s music is irresistible: sophisticated, lavish and melody-rich.

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.
