THE TEATRO ALLA SCALA IS COMING TO DRIVE-IN MILANO WITH FRANCO ZEFFIRELLI’S AIDA
Milan, July 19, 2020 EVENT
Not only a selection of art house films and award-winning pictures playing to a packed house every evening: Sunday the 19th of July opera can also be seen at DRIVE-IN Milano.
Thanks to the collaboration with the Teatro alla Scala and the City Council of Milan, the drive-in is showing opera for the first time, bringing the magic and atmosphere of a theatre to the outdoors.
AIDA by Giuseppe Verdi, the masterpiece directed by Franco Zeffirelli from the opening night of the 2006/2007 season at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan will be shown on the 200 sq. m maxi-led wall.
Remembered by some critics as the ”Aida of all Aidas”, the production was a great success with the public who were impressed by the sumptuous staging and beautiful sets and the music conducted by Riccardo Chailly.
The film will be introduced with a listening guide by Prof. Franco Pulcini, Editorial Director of the Teatro alla Scala, which will guide the public on a discovery of the origin, the story and the characters of one of the most famous operas in the world.
The success the DRIVE IN-MILANO in our area in via Senigallia is enjoying and this important event – pointed out Giuseppe Lobalsamo Head of Real Estate at the Unipol Group – is confirmation that we are on the right track: taking culture and entertainment in their various forms to outlying city suburbs is a way of letting people relive these experiences, a kind of “taste” of what is to come in the future when the projects we are working on are complete and the areas are redeveloped and returned to the city as a whole”.
