Accademia Teatro Alla Scala

As part of the ongoing partnership with Abu Dhabi Classics, the Orchestra from the prestigious Accademia Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Italy, is returning to Abu Dhabi. This time, the orchestra will invite the public to celebrate the splendours of Italian opera. Together with singers from the Scala, it will present excerpts from the most famous works of Giuseppe Verdi, including La Forza del Destino (1862), Un Ballo in Maschera (1859), Nabucco (1842) and Il Trovatore (1853). To round up this exceptional concert evening, the orchestra will play under the baton of Italian maestro Donato Renzetti the 6th Symphony of Tchaikovsky. Widely considered to be the Russian composer’s masterpiece, the symphony, nicknamed the ‘Pathétique’, premiered in 1893 and is one of the highest expressions of the symphonic age in Classical Music.
