The tenor Fabio Sartori is forced by an indisposition to withdraw from this production. La Scala would like to thank Stefano la Colla, who has accepted at short notice to perform the role of Enzo Grimaldo.
Although unusual and difficult to classify, Ponchielli’s spectacular opera is always felt to be a special event by opera lovers. The libretto by Tobia Gorrio, nom de plume of Arrigo Boito, drawing on Victor Hugo’s prose, sketches a dark and mysterious Venice, theatre of passional excesses and crimes, which is perfectly mirrored by the composer’s generous and captivating melodic vein. A historical fresco with Scapigliatura overtones featuring six protagonists, one for each voice type.
