The much acclaimed opera that opened the 2017-2018 season in historical costumes directed by Mario Martone and featuring fascinating rotating scenery designed by Margherita Palli returns to the stage under the expert musical direction of Marco Armiliato, who will be making his debut in the La Scala pit. Umberto Giordano’s grand choral fresco of the hopes of the French Revolution betrayed by the fanatism of the Reign of Terror has a new prima donna in Sonya Yoncheva, while the role of the doomed poet is shared by Yusif Eyvazov and Jonas Kaufmann. The cast is completed by Ambrogio Maestri and Amartuvshin Enkhbat as Carlo Gérard.
