The Opening Night of Teatro alla Scala’s 2016-2017 Season will be staged as usual on December 7, the day of St. Ambrose. The opera will be Madama Butterfly by G. Puccini. Madame Butterfly first saw the light of day in La Scala in February 1904. Riccardo Chailly continues his critical reinterpretation of the works of Puccini by proposing the first La Scala version for his second 7 December as Principal Conductor. It is directed by Alvis Hermanis and the cast orbits around Cio-Cio San played by Maria José Siri, an emerging soprano on the greatest international stages.
