Opera returns to Milan's La Scala
From the BBC website

Stuart adds: and maybe ballet from time to time


Milan's world-famous opera house La Scala is re-opening on Tuesday after a three-year closure for renovation.
A dress rehearsal of the opening opera, Antonio Salieri's Europa Riconosciuta, was held on Sunday for the staff and workers involved in the restoration.

Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera hailed it as "the real opening night" that took place amid "copious applause, ovations [and] a party atmosphere".

Glitz and clamour mark La Scala's reopening night

By JOHN HOOPER
The Guardian
December 08, 2004

Decked out in red roses and surrounded by riot police, Milan's expanded and refurbished La Scala opera house reopened last night in wholly characteristic style - a mix of high society glitz and indignant social protest.

Held captive by La Scala's triumphant return

By JOHN HOOPER

The first night of a La Scala season is always an event of cultural, social, and even political importance. In Italy, opera is not just another art form but a part of the nation's DNA

La Scala Is the Star at Its Own Reopening

By HARVEY SACHS
The New York Times
December 09, 2004

The sound of grumbling is as much a part of the opera world as the sound of singing. And much of it has been heard here recently over the choice of Antonio Salieri's long-forgotten opera "Europa Riconosciuta" for the reopening of the Teatro Alla Scala after nearly three years of renovation.

House takes a bow

By ANDREW CLARK
The Financial Times
December 09, 2004

Welcome to Milan on St Ambrose's Day - the day of the city's patron saint, when tradition dictates that the season at La Scala begins. Judging by the hubbub on Tuesday evening, the Italian public has sorely missed the social and political connotations of opening night over the past three years, while the great Milanese theatre underwent the most drastic renovation in its 226-year history.

La Scala board fires top official
From the BBC website


Milan's world-famous La Scala opera house has fired one its top executives.
The theatre's board sacked Carlo Fontana - who has headed the theatre since 1990 - citing "differences" with conductor Riccardo Muti.

La Scala reopened in December after three years, following renovations that cost an estimated 61m Euros (£42m).

In a statement, the theatre's board said it was "urgent to unify the theatre's management". Fontana has been replaced with Mauro Meli.

Recriminations fly as crisis engulfs La Scala
'Dictator' musical director spoiling show, Zeffirelli tells the Guardian. By John Hooper for The Guardian.

It is the most fabled opera house in the world, whose reopening was lauded as one of the big events in music. Yet just three months later, La Scala is being paralysed by a crisis of Verdian theatricality that has led to rebellion and strikes, and is now prompting a head on clash between two of the titans of contemporary opera.
From his tranquil villa-cum-studio near Rome, Franco Zeffirelli has watched the goings-on in Milan with growing alarm. In an exclusive interview with the Guardian, the film, television and opera director poured out his anger in a ferocious attack on Riccardo Muti, La Scala's musical director, whom he claims is entirely responsible for the theatre's plight.

Another resignation at La Scala
From the BBC website


The president of the orchestra at La Scala in Milan stepped down on Monday, a week after Riccardo Muti resigned as musical director.
Fedele Confalonieri also gave up his seat on the philharmonic orchestra's board of directors.

His departure is only the latest upset at the legendary Italian opera house.

Mr Muti resigned on 2 April citing "hostility" from members of staff, many of whom had objected to his firing of a senior La Scala official in February.

La Scala picks artistic director

La Scala opera house in Milan has appointed a new artistic director as bosses attempt to recover from a management crisis.
Frenchman Stephane Lissner, of Paris's Theatre de la Madeleine, has been given a four-and-a-half year contract.

Musical director Riccardo Muti quit on April 2, citing the "hostility" of fellow employees after a series of rows. His post has yet to be filled.
