Live from Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Thursday 24 May, 7.00
Conductor: Robin Ticciati
Staging: Richard Jones
Benjamin Britten’s most popular opera comes to La Scala for the 2011/2012 season. Performed on just two previous occasions at La Scala (1975 and 2000), the opera will be presented for the first time in a new production by English director Richard Jones, whom the public will remember for his extraordinary interpretation of Shostakovich’s Lady Macbeth of the Mtensk District.
John Graham-Hall stars as impetuous fisherman Peter Grimes in this mysterious tale set in a small fishing village on England’s east coast in the first half of the 19th century. The young Robin Ticciati, principal conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, takes the helm in his La Scala opera debut.
Approximate running time: 175 mins.
