Now that Teatro alla Scala has announced its 2021/22 season, Canada’s opera fans can get excited about the Canadian presence in their mainstage lineup.

Canadian dynamic duo Robert Carsen and Michael Levine present their Don Giovanni from March 27-April 12, 2022, featuring Christopher Maltman in the title role. In an exciting move for the skyrocketing mezzo-soprano, Emily D’Angelo will sing Donna Elvira.

May 4-22, 2022, La Scala’s new production of Verdi’s Un ballo in maschera will place Canadian-American star soprano Sondra Radvanovsky front and centre as Amelia. She’ll share the stage with Francesco Meli as Riccardo, and Luca Salsi as Renato.

And from November 5-18, 2022, Teatro alla Scala puts up Thomas Adès’ The Tempest, in a production by Canadian director Robert Lepage, co-produced with l’Opéra de Québec, The Metropolitan Opera, and Wiener Staatsoper. Canadian tenors Frédéric Antoun and Josh Lovell sing Caliban and Ferdinand respectively, alongside Audrey Luna as Ariel and Isabel Leonard as Miranda.
