Staged exclusively for the television broadcast in 2021, Damiano Michieletto’s production of Salome finally meets a live audience with Zubin Mehta returning to the podium: indeed the great conductor made his debut in the La Scala orchestra pit precisely with this title in 1974. The rigorous geometrical scenes by Paolo Fantin, overhung by an ill-boding black moon, are populated with references to symbolist painting, becoming the theatre of a murky tragedy of childhood. Vida Miknevičiūtė debuts at La Scala in the title role, while Michael Volle endows Jochanaan with his powerful voice.
