But of course, the Teatro alla Scala in Milan is first and foremost an opera house. This 2019-2020 season offers a wide range of masterpieces. With Tosca, Italian titles are highly anticipated as Giordano's Fedora, which brings together Sonya Yoncheva and Roberto Alagna or Haendel's magnificent Agrippina (with Stéphanie d'Oustrac and in a staging by Robert Carsen). Two very exceptional sopranos share the role of Verdi´s Traviata. Angel Blue and Marina Rebeka are beautifully surrounded by Charles Castronovo, Plácido Domingo or Leo Nucci. Two of Verdi's major works are on the bill with A ballo in maschera conducted by Zubin Mehta or Il Trovatore with Francesco Meli and Liudmyla Monastyrska, among others. The Gioconda of Ponchielli and Rossini with Il Viaggio a Reims and Il turco in Italia complete the list of famous titles. The boldness of the 2019-2020 programming with the rare Amore dei tre re de Montemezzi or Intolleranza 1960 by Nono, directed by Damiano Michieletto, must be emphasized. The German repertoire is in the spotlight with Salome of Strauss directed by Maestro Chailly or Tannhäuser by Wagner with Peter Seiffert, Krassimira Stoyanova or Dorothea Röschmann and Christian Gerhaher. But it is probably the French operas that must be booked as soon as possible. Vittorio Grigòlo and Diana Damrau play Gounod's Roméo et Juliette while Patricia Petibon and Bernard Richter sing Pelléas and Mélisande by Debussy.
A magnificent season that places La Scala of Milan forever at the top of the biggest Opera houses in the world.
