"La Vestale' holds a special place in the history of opera, as it was the opera that Maria Callas performed on Teatro Alla Scala’s opening night in 1954. To honor her legacy and contributions to the world of music, we are bringing back the historic 1954 version of this opera, in a new, semi-staged production. At Teatro Grattacielo, we believe in pushing boundaries and creating unique artistic experiences. In that spirit, we have decided to combine the world of opera with visual arts, making this production of LA VESTALE an immersive and unforgettable event. We have partnered with exceptionally talented visual artist Lydia Venieri who will create stunning tableaux that complement the opera’s themes and elevate the overall artistic experience." -Teatro Grattacielo
