The world-famous La Scala Theater has arrived in the capital of Kazakhstan
The world-famous La Scala Theater has arrived in the capital of Kazakhstan. As part of the Astana EXPO 2017 cultural program, the Italian troupe will present the bright comic opera "Falstaff" by Giuseppe Verdi. Famous soloist Ambrogio Maestri will play the leading part. As the artists note, Verdi's opera is one of the finest and subtle pieces of music written shortly before the composer's death. On the 7th and 9th of September the La Scala theater will also delight the audience with the performance of Ludwig van Beethoven's masterpiece - the grandiose Symphony number nine under the direction of Maestro Zubin Mehta.
ALEXANDER PEREIRA, DIRECTOR, LA SCALA THEATRE:
- The fact that we chose Falstaff and the 9th Symphony of Beethoven proves how important these tours are for us, and that we are interested in their success. Falstaff is one of Giuseppe Verdi's most refined, beautiful creations, which he wrote shortly before his death. We hope that the Kazakh public will be happy to see our performances.
