Teatro alla Scala Announces Conductor Change for Upcoming Concert

By Francisco Salazar

The Teatro alla Scala has announced a conductor change for its concerts on Feb. 15, 16, and 18, 2023.

The company said, “due to family circumstances, Daniel Harding has to withdraw from conducting the concert scheduled for 15, 16, and 18 February. La Scala thanks Daniel Barenboim who made himself available to take his place, on the same dates and with the same program.”

The performances will mark Barenboim’s return to La Scala in seven years. The conductor was the Music Director of the legendary Milan theater from 2011 to 2014.

The concert is set to include Mozart’s Mozart Symphony No. 39, 40, and 41. Audiences not in Milan will be able to see the concert via the company’s new streaming platform.
