NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE

 

The reading by Alvis Hermanis from the 2014 Salzburg Festival, which set Il trovatore
in a museum, was striking for its ability to cancel the contemporary background at nightfall, allowing drama to erupt in scenes of great visionary power. The production arrives at La Scala in a revised version. The director, who made his debut on the Piermarini stage with the revival of Die Soldaten, created new productions of I due
Foscari
and Madama Butterfly. Nicola Luisotti, Music Director of the San Francisco Opera until 2018 and now Associate Director of the Teatro Real in Madrid, conducts an impressive cast including Liudmyla Monastyrska, Francesco Meli in his fifth Verdi role at La Scala, Violeta Urmana, and Massimo Cavalletti.
