Ermolli, vice president of the Foundation Scala, presentation of the next season which starts with Carmen, is confident that a solution will be found, but calls for funds and the status of a national theater for Piermarini, “I have taken up the promise of the Minister Sandro Bondi and in coming weeks we will see a Fus-based as perceived in 2008. If so, it would be for us a sigh of relief. Otherwise, we will have to seek other solutions to avoid the enormous danger of having to reduce the artistic program. ”
No alarmism, however, why exclude Ermolli minute cancellation: “It is a question of international credibility, we have signed agreements with the artists and we can not afford to give a bad signal by erasing something.” Bondi, reports Lissner, has also promised the status of a national theater at La Scala, which would allow more autonomy and therefore contracts and engagements more freedom, including the superintendent, Stéphane Lissner, who Ermolli want to block for a long time: “I expect by Lissner Verdi only a year in the world in 2013.

In his fifth year at the helm of the first opera house in the world, the superintendent signature French finally turning the season: “The one closest to my idea of the scale, a point of arrival, which opens a second phase of our journey.” That on the one hand takes into account the tradition of the theater, the other opens it to new experiences. Stéphane Lissner cites Greens: ‘He wrote: we return the old, will be a step forward. ” But, warns in his letters is perceived extreme intolerance toward clichés. “Greens do not ever confuse tradition with the Convention.”
Bruno Ermolli, vice president of the Foundation Trusts Bondi minister. “We are committed to bridging the gap of seven million cut from the cuts.

Scala MilanoAnche the crisis is felt and you pull the strap. Not as elsewhere, disagree. For the next season, made yesterday, in fact, expect seven new productions of works by five shots, and six ballets, including two new brand. Parade beautiful items, wands, directors and dancers. The superintendent Stéphane Lissner admits, however, that he had to slip away a few years el’Incoronazione Luisa Miller di Poppea “to avoid blow productions per season started,” she explains.
Adjustments and shifts in part, Lissner yesterday finally presented the bill in his head once you enter the threshold of the Scala in May 2005, but that required a long period of time so that we could achieve. Why artists should be requested well in advance, “they want to be sure to work with colleagues estimate that,” says Superintendent pulling the ball into the sound reasons of ethics and sentiment. Those same artists also fly in the desert Abu Dhabi and Doha catalyzed dunes of petrodollars. The family of artists expected by next December 7 has its maximum leader Claudio Abbado, who after 24 years of absence from Milan again in June by virtue of an eco-blackmail: he wants the trees. And the trees are. Letizia Moratti, Mayor of Milan and President of the Board, confirmed the proposed planting of trees. And the other big missing, ie, Riccardo Muti? ‘I sent him a letter, but I did not have answers. Perhaps they have not received, you will blame the Italian post office ‘joked Lissner.
Among the directors who Lissner will take on the next edition, stands Daniel Barenboim on the podium of Carmen by Georges Bizet, the opera dell’inaugurazione with Anita Rachvelishvili, Georgia, 25 years old, just out of the oven dall’Accademia Theater, in the shoes of the protagonist . Already, a dazzling promise rather than a solid guarantee for a first scaligera: the times are changing. A Carmen who predicts that it will be considered explosive Emma Dante to have it directed. A Pierre Boulez the honor to inaugurate the season Symphony, with pianist Maurizio Pollini. The twentieth century offers two new productions at La Scala and returns Daniele Gatti, engaged in Lulu by Alban Berg, directed by Peter Stein, and the Finn Esa-Pekka Salonen, never before in Piermarini, From the podium for a house in the dead of Leos Janacek with director Patrice Chéreau. Another superlative direction, that of the Lithuanian Eimuntas Nekrosius, signed by Faust.
The list of fine rods include the name of Zubin Mehta, director of Tannhauser in the new production of La Fura dels Baus. As for the band edge, this is with the Vienna Georges Pretre, the London Symphony with Daniel Hardin and the complex of Santa Cecilia conducted by Antonio Pappano. Address entries: spotlight on tenorissimo Placido Domingo, which is celebrating its 40 years of Scala, December 9, with the first act of Die Walküre conducted by Barenboim. That the head and in the spring of 2010, in Simon Boccanegra. To represent the latest generation of the levels there will be Rolando Villazon (vocal cords permitting), Juan Diego Florez, Conte in Rossini’s Barber. Jonas Kaufmann is Don José in Carmen inaugural and hoping that escape the curse that has marked the levels of the last openings, induced to leave by Piermarini (Roberto Alagna and Joseph Filianoti).
