I Due Foscari at La Scala

25 Feb-25 March. I due Foscari by Verdi.

This promises to be must-see new production. Whether it is the cast, the director or the conductor it will be a feast for all opera lovers even though this is sometimes considered one of Verdi's "minor" operas. Placido Domingo, who has done much to resurrect the opera, first in Los Angeles and then in London, is in the role of Francesco Foscari and Francesco Meli as Jacopo. And there are also two young promising singers, Anna Pirozzi, and Luca Salsi, the new star at the Met who is alternating with Domingo. Alvis Hermanis returns to La Scala to direct the opera after his success last year with Die Soldaten, and conductor Michele Mariotti is one of Italy's best.
