La Scala Rossini's Il Turco in Italia

OPERA - New Production! Rossini’s witty tragicomedy of love, lust, marriage and mistaken identity has a rich La Scala history, having premiered at the theatre in 1814, before being famously reprised in the following century by Gavazzeni with Callas and Chailly with Devia. Award-winning stage and film director Roberto Andò’s new production for La Scala, conducted by Diego Fasolis, assembles a strong cast, led by Rosa Feola as the ‘capricious, but honest’ Donna Fiorilla, bored of married life, and Erwin Schrott as the Turkish Prince who catches her eye. The story swerves from laugh-out-loud humour to darker intrigue, and Rossini’s music is irresistible: sophisticated, lavish and melody-rich.
