THE MI­LANESE EVENT PAR EX­CEL­LENCE

Where Milan - - WHERE NOW HOT DATES -

The open­ing of the sea­son at La Scala is much more than just a “pre­mière”; it's one of the year's most ea­gerly an­tic­i­pated events, in­fused with tra­di­tion and his­tory, and at­tended by Mi­lan's cul­tural and so­cial elite. As in pre­vi­ous years, in ad­di­tion to fringe events, the open­ing will be shown live at cine­mas and the­atres, and on a mega screen lo­cated in the mid­dle of the ‘Ot­tagono' in the city's Gal­le­ria Vit­to­rio Emanuele II. The event will also be given live cov­er­age on RAI, Italy's na­tional TV chan­nel. The star of this year's premiere is At­tila, an early work by Giuseppe Verdi that was staged at La Fenice in Venice in 1846. The opera will be per­formed un­der the ba­ton of Ric­cardo Chailly (see photo).
