Medici.TV is set to stream the Teatro alla Scala’s new production of Cherubini’s “Médée.”

The streaming platform will showcase the opera on Jan. 27 in co-production with Rai.

Latvian soprano Marina Rebeka stars in the title role in a new production by Damiano Michieletto. She is joined by a cast that includes tenor Stanislas de Barbeyrac as Jason, bass Nahuel Di Pierro as Creon, Martina Russomanno as Dircé, and Ambroisine Bré as Néris. Michele Gamba conducts the opera.

The current production of “Médée” is the first time the Teatro alla Scala performs the Paris version of the work. The company famously brought the 1909 Italian version, which was made famous by Maria Callas in 1953 and 1961.
