Teatro alla Scala Chorus and Orchestra
Turandot, Giacomo Puccini’s final opera, made its debut posthumously at La Scala on the 25th of April 1926. Arturo Toscanini was on the podium and on stage was the impressively striking figure of the polish soprano Rosa Raisa. The presence of illustrious international singers was to mark almost all of the twenty stagings of Turandot at La Scala.
The performance of the 7th of December 1964 stands out as being particularly memorable, conducted by Gianandrea Gavazzeni and starring an extraordinary Birgit Nilsson and a breath-taking Franco Corelli.
Director: Margherita Wallmann
