Opera will return to La Scala on 23 January

Streamed Così Fan Tutte will be first opera in 11 months

Italy's La Scala will play host to an opera on 23 January for the first time since before the Covid-19 lockdown, the iconic Milanese theatre announced.

The opera house will stage Mozart's Così Fan Tutte with no audience, exactly 11 months after it closed on 23 February last year due to the first wave of COVID-19. It had staged some concerts since but not a full-blown opera.

The show will be streamed via the theatre's website and on RaiPlay, ANSA reported.
