La Scala orch to make Bolshoi debut (instead of BBC Proms)

Riccardo Chailly is taking the Filarmonica della Scala on a 10-stop Europe tour, including a first visit to Moscow.

A date will have been offered to the BBC Proms, which evidently declined. Who needs La Scala at the Proms?

  • I have heard the Lá Scala orchestra at the Bolschoi in Carsen’s production of Don Giovanni a few years ago. It is not a début.

  • And they have far more available money between them than the BBC Proms has or could possibly have to have La Scala.
