Traditionally, the new season at La Scala in Milan opens on December 7, this year with a new production of Verdi's "Macbeth" directed by Davide Livermore and conducted by Riccardo Chailly. Giuseppe Verdi's Shakespearean drama features an all-star cast: Anna Netrebko and Luca Salsi.

Giuseppe Verdi's Shakespearean drama boasts an absolutely star-studded cast: Anna Netrebko, a regular also at La Scala in Milan, takes on the role of the unscrupulous Lady Macbeth in this production, who turns her husband into a regicide. Alongside the Russian-born soprano, Italian baritone Luca Salsi shines in the title role of the general Macbeth. This first-class cast is completed by the outstanding Russian bass Ildar Abdrazakov.
