Every year, Rising Alternative is proud to broadcast of one of the most prominent arts events of the season – Teatro alla Scala’s opening night, which takes place annually on December 7, the feast day of Saint Ambrose, the patron saint of Milan. This year, La Scala has chosen the Verdi favorite “La Traviata” to kick off the calendar, with celebrated soprano Diana Damrau as Violetta Valery. Piotr Beczala and Zeljko Lucic round out the cast as Alfredo and Giorgio Germont, respectively. This new and exciting production will be a must-see event for any opera fan.
