A return to La Scala in ‘La bohème’
This summer, Ailyn Pérez returns to Milan’s historic Teatro alla Scala to reprise her acclaimed portrayal of Mimì – seen on the La Scala stage in 2015 – in Puccini’s La bohème. She has been heralded for her “vulnerability and surging strength” (New York Times) in the role at The Metropolitan Opera, which she will now sing alongside a tremendous cast in Italy, including Fabio Sartori as Rodolfo, Simone Piazzola as Marcello, and Federica Lombardi as Musetta. The production, originally created by Franco Zeffirelli, is revered for its sumptuous sets, stunning costumes, and timeless staging.
Performances take place June 30 and July 3, 5 & 10 with Maestro Evelino Pidò leading from the pit for all dates.
