Teatro alla Scala opens new season with Puccini’s Madama Butterfly  

Madama Butterfly opened the opera season at La Scala in Milan thanks also to the support of Intesa Sanpaolo. The sponsorship is aimed at encouraging the younger generations to create, perform and enjoy such brilliant performances. The Principal Conductor Riccardo Chailly and the Director Alvis Hermanis offer an opportunity to rediscover a Butterfly that is even more audacious than initially intended.
