Following the positive outcome of the Covid-19 test of one of the members of Aida’s singing company, Teatro alla Scala has arranged a double swab of the entire cast. The first of the swabs gave negative results for all the artists, but today’s morning the results of the second buffer highlighted a second case. The Theatre immediately alerted the health authorities that have arranged a quarantine period for the entire company. Accordingly, the planned performance of Aida in concert form of tonight’s concert for the Cultural Promotion Service cannot take place and will be replaced by a concert of arias and choirs by Aida, Nabucco and La bohème directed by Master Fabio Luisi with the participation of the artists Anita Hartig, Aida Garifullina, Jonas Kaufmann and Simone Pitch.
Teatro alla Scala thanks all the artists for their kind availability.
