Live Broadcast: Verdi's Giovanna d'Arco - Teatro alla Scala di Milano

Just as every single year, the opening of Scala's new season on December 7 will be broadcast live. Riccardo Chailly's first official season as the chief conductor of Scala will be opened with him conducting Verdi's Giovanna d'Arco. Quite a rarely performed work by itself, the opera received quite a revival during summer 2013 in Salzburg. Anna Netrebko, who sang the title role in the concert performance back then, will reprise the role in Milan with Francesco Meli as Carlo and Carlos Álvarez as Giacomo. Judging from the photos alone, I think this current production by Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier will be quite stunning. Not every day you got to see Netrebko in an armor suit.
