20 April-17 May. A much awaited production of this classic with choreography by the Canadian Anna-Marie Holmes (based on the Petipa and Sergeyev versions).
Holmes first created for this choreography for the Boston Ballet and then for the American Theatre Ballet in 1998 and has since reworked it several times (just as Petipa did). This version for La Scala is a new one. The sets and costumes by Luisa Spinatelli are also new.
The story is loosely based on Byron's poem and there is always some exciting dancing. Teatro alla Scala, Piazza Filodrammatici 1, www.teatroallascala.org.
