Milan salutes Claudio Abbado

Milan will pay homage to the late conductor Claudio Abbado, who died on 20 January.
On Monday 27 January at 18.00, the Philharmonic Orchestra of La Scala will perform the funeral march from Beethoven’s Eroica symphony to an empty house and with the doors wide open.  Daniel Barenboim will conduct the orchestra, which Abbado founded in 1982, in a funeral performance to be heard across the centre of the city where the maestro was born in 1933.
On Sunday 2 February at 21.00, the Teatro Strehler will screen the 1984 performance of Rossini’s Il Viaggio a Reims, conducted by Abbado and directed by Luca Ronconi.  Admission will be free as long as places are available; tickets may be booked at the theatre box-office in Largo Greppi 1.
