La Scala rolls out a season of debutsNews
The Teatro alla Scala today presented a 2021-22 season of 13 operas and seven ballets amid hopes for an easing of Covid rules that restrict audiences to 500 in a 2,000-seat house.
Among striking debuts are the US soprano Lisette Oropesa, who missed her scheduled slot last season; the UK composer Thomas Ades with his opera The Tempest; and the Italian conductor Speranza Scapucci.
The season will open on December 7 with Verdi’s Macbeth conducted by music director Riccardo Chailly, with Anna Netrebko opposite baritone Luca Salsi and tenor Francesco Meli.
