At only 22 years old Gioachino Rossini had already written 13 works. The last one of this successful series was entitled Il turco in Italia. Rossini's masterpiece arrives at Teatro alla Scala for eight performances that will sweetly accompany us until the beginning of spring.
The opera is presented with a new aesthetics, both in terms of music and direction. This version is directed by Roberto Andò, in his debut at La Scala. His version will seem inspired by a Felliniesque atmosphere, in the attempt to underline the incurable gap between fantasy and reality. Andò writes in the direction notes: "With his genius, following the libretto, Rossini affirms that in love reigns fantasy as the legitimate impulse to immagine what we would like to happen". You can't miss this classical opera in order to rediscover the eternal anachrony of love.
