This first show will be reserved only for healthcare personnel thanks to the support of the Bracco Foundation; three more evenings will follow on September 14, 16 and 17, open to the public.


The symphonic appointments will continue with Maestro Zubin Mehta, who on September 29, 30 and October 1 will conduct the Filarmonica della Scala in Vier letzte Lieder with soprano Camilla Nylund and in the symphonic poem Ein Heldenleben by Richard Strauss.
