For the première of Giuseppe Verdi's
Don Carlo at Teatro La Scala, which opens the opera season at
the prestigious Milan theatre on Thursday, Milan Mayor Giuseppe
Sala and Senate Speaker Ignazio La Russa will be seated not in
the royal box but rather in the stalls near Life Senator Liliana
Segre, sources said on Wednesday.
Other prominent people due to attend the opening night conducted by Riccardo Chailly are American singer-songwriter Patti Smith, director of the Paris Opera Alexandre Neef, Deputy Premier and Transport Minister Matteo Salvini, Culture Minister Gennaro Sangiuliano, Chief of the Defence Staff Admiral Giuseppe Cavo Dragone and Lombardy Governor Attilio Fontana.
