Teatro alla Scala Roadshow

Fierrabras was actually created in Vienna in 1988 under his baton during the Wiener Festwochen, Ruth Berghaus directing. Before these performances Fierrabras was only partially performed in Karlsruhe in 1897 and in Perugia in 1978. The event presented contributions by important witnesses of the process that made the production possible, including Maurizio Pollini, who first told Claudio Abbado about the Score, and Mr Pereira who collaborated with the Wiener Festwochen, together with messages from Daniel Harding, who conducted Fierrabras at La Scala in June 2018 and Josef Protschka who sang the title role in 1988. Speeches were also made by Mr Mazzonis, a longtime collaborator of Claudio Abbado, by Corinne Holtz, who in an expert on the theatre of Ruth Berghaus, and by the president of the Association of Italian Music Critics, Mr Foletto. The longtime engagement of Claudio Abbado as an advocate of young musicians will be remembered with the presence of the Adorno Quartet.
