The long-serving music director left La Scala on May 2, 2005 after conducting a concert with the Vienna Philharmonic. He has not crossed its threshold since.
This summer, the maestro will turn 75. La Scala is putting on an exhibition of his life and work.
We hear that Riccardo Muti agreed today to attend the opening and meet the public in the main Piermarini hall.
Expect a press release later.
