Washington DC and New York were the two stops in the U.S. in the series of international presentations of Teatro alla Scala's 2023-2024 Season-which will open on Dec. 7 with Verdi's Don Carlo conducted by Riccardo Chailly and directed by Lluís Pasqual, LaScala.tv's 2023-2024 programming, and the newly established "Teatro alla Scala Association of America."

The press conference in Washington, hosted by the Ambassador of Italy to the United States Mariangela Zappia, followed the one on Oct. 24 in New York at the Consulate General.

"Teatro alla Scala, a symbol of excellence of Italian culture that finds in the American public many of its most passionate admirers, opens a season full of connections with the United States, including for the return of Riccardo Muti, with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and Gianandrea Noseda, with the National Symphony Orchestra of Washington," Ambassador Zappia pointed out. "We also enthusiastically welcome the birth of the Teatro alla Scala Association of America, an important step that will help to cement even more the theater's extraordinary bond with this country," she added.

Superintendent Dominique Meyer commented, "I am very happy to have had the opportunity to present La Scala's Season and new initiatives to the international press and public,thanks to the willingness and generous welcome of the Italian diplomatic offices. Special thanks go to Ambassador Mariangela Zappia and Consul General Fabrizio Di Michele, who allowed us to publicize not only our Season of opera, ballet and concerts, but also the completion of the renovation project signed by Mario Botta with the construction of the tower on Via Verdi, the development of our streaming platform LaScalaTv, to which from January it will be possible to subscribe, and the birth of the "Teatro alla Scala Association of America" that will support some of our most important projects."
