Frederic Wake-Walker will open his production of Mozart’s La finta giardiniera at La Scala Milan next week, conducted by Diego Fasolis. The production debuted at Glyndebourne Festival Opera in 2014, where critics said:
“The plot, punctuated by faints and fits of madness, may be impossible to take seriously, but, with director Frederic Wake-Walker at the controls and Robin Ticciati catching the idiom in the pit, it emerges with irresistible charm.” Michael Church, The Independent, 30 June 2014
La finta giardiniera runs at La Scala from 8 to 29 October 2018. The performance on 11 October will be live broadcast onRai Radio 3, in recorded broadcast at 9.15pm onRai 5 TV, and in recorded broadcast in Switzerland, Northern Europe, Korea and Japan in 8K.
