TEATRO ALLA SCALA: The Temple of Wonders

Co-presented by the Farnsworth

A journey through time and space to discover the place where the most glorious pages in the history of music, opera and ballet have been written!

Ever since its construction was completed in 1778, the Teatro alla Scala in Milan has drawn major artists from the international music scene and has been a mecca of music. To this day, performing at the Scala marks the pinnacle of one’s career in the eyes of the world. Music critic John Gavazzeni wrote: “The pillars of world opera … [were] all launched or consecrated in one place, at the Teatro alla Scala.”

This presentation is part of Specticast’s The Art & Architecture in Cinema series, which brings the world’s greatest works of art, and their environs, to cinemas nationwide.

A post-film discussion will be led by Roger Dell, art historian, former Harvard lecturer, and former Farnsworth Director of Education.

In Italian with English subtitles.
