Rai 5 is set to present Verdi’s “I Masnadieri” from the Teatro alla Scala on Oct. 3, 2019.

The presentation will be the premiere of Sir David McVicar’s production on television. “I Masnadieri” was presented at the Teatro alla Scala this past summer and boasted an all-star cast led by Lisette Oropesa, Fabio Sartori, Massimo Cavalletti, and Michele Pertusi. Michele Mariotti led the production. Of the production, OperaWire stated, “Lisette Oropesa Shines In Troubled Verdi Opera.”

The production was Oropesa’s La Scala debut and marked yet another success in her career following acclaim at the Teatro Real de Madrid, Opéra de Paris, and Teatro dell’Opera di Roma.

The soprano is currently performing “Manon” at the Metropolitan Opera and has received rave reviews with OperaWire noting, “Lisette Oropesa & Michael Fabiano Shine In Laurent Pelly’s Plunge Into The Male Gaze.”

The production is set to be presented at 21:15 local Italian time.
