On December 4th, the Under30s return to the Teatro alla Scala. As every year since 2008, those under 30 have the opportunity to be the first to see the opening show of the Milan theater season. Sold out for Macbeth conducted by Riccardo Chailly in the “metropolitan” staging by Davide Livermore with the stars Luca Salsi and Anna Netrebko. And on the 14th it is the turn of La Bayadère which inaugurates the Ballet Season.
In addition to the activity of the Cultural Promotion Service, which brings tens of thousands of children to the theater every year, the UNDER30 project has been added, which since 2008 has allowed anyone under 30 years of age to preview the inaugural show of the season. The Preview is an opportunity to discover the Theater and learn about the possibilities of accessing the shows with the UNDER30 Pass and the dedicated subscription formulas.
Saturday 4 December at 6 pm it is the turn of Macbeth by Giuseppe Verdi with which the Teatro alla Scala will open the 2021/2022 Opera Season, on the podium the Music Director Riccardo Chailly, while the direction is by Davide Livermore and in the parts of the protagonists Luca Salsi, Anna Netrebko, Francesco Meli and Ildar Abdrazakov arrive. A title particularly loved by the public and awaited for the prestige of the performers and the spectacularity of a production that promises to be the new millennium version of the “phantasmagoria” that Verdi wanted for the Florentine premiere in 1847.
On 14 December it will be the turn of the La Bayadère Preview which will bring forward the inauguration of the Ballet Season by one day. For 13 times in 14 years (in 2020 the epidemic imposed the suspension) the UNDER30 Preview was sold out with about 2,000 children for the Opera and as many for the Ballet and a request for places always much higher than the availability. By now, more than 50,000 young people have participated in the previews, creating an enthusiastic and passionate community. Today, the kids who attended the Previews at the end of the 2000s are adults and are becoming a new “adult” audience that is then handed down to new generations.
But the Opera and Ballet Previews are only the first step to becoming true Scaligeri fans.
To continue the discovery of the Scala world and its behind the scenes, the second step is the subscription of a PassUNDER30, which at the symbolic amount of 10 euros allows you to enter the LaScalaUNDER30 Community for the whole season, obtaining special offers on shows (with reductions from 45% to 80%), exclusively organized guided tours of the Theater, the Theater Museum and the Ansaldo Workshops and access to various open rehearsals.
The third step that allows you to be a faithful spectator of the Teatro alla Scala is the UNDER30 Subscription, which allows you to attend three or four shows for just over the price of one, as well as guaranteeing the UNDER30 Pass for free.
Subscriptions are available in the classic fixed date formula of 4 titles, declined in an Opera solution (which includes Thaïs by Massenet, Adriana Lecouvreur by Cilea, Rigoletto by Verdi and The Secret Marriage of Cimarosa, with places still available starting from 98 euros ) and in a Ballet (which includes the Triptych Dawson / Kratz / Kylián, Jewels by Balanchine, the diptych AfteRite – Les Noces by McGregor and Giselle by Coralli-Perrot, with seats still available starting at 88 euros).
Furthermore, only for fixed-date Subscribers, the Theater organizes a meeting with the artists before each performance by subscription, followed by a happy hour in the “Arturo Toscanini” Stage Ridotto.
Alternatively, you can freely choose 3 Opera, Ballet or Concert performances thanks to the Libero UNDER30 options, with a starting price of up to 45 euros (for 3 recitals).
