Led by Diego Fasolis, the special project dedicated to the rendition of eighteenth-century works on original instruments by the Scala Orchestra’s baroque ensemble tackles its first work by Mozart with La finta giardiniera, which was staged only once, in 1970, at La Piccola Scala. Presented at the Glyndebourne Festival, where it showcased the talent of director Frederic Wake-Walker, the production features a popular cast – already applauded last year for Don Giovanni –, including Hanna-Elisabeth Müller, Anett Fritsch, Bernard Richter, Giulia Semenzato and Mattia Olivieri, that draws on complicity created through shared experience.
