Ahead of the 7 December prima of Claus Guth's new Lohengrin, La Scala have released a few teaser photos taken at rehearsals of the swan-free production.

It seems, Intermezzo, that, faced with the singular beauty of this remarkable artist, your readers have become unusually shy and speechless. Perhaps I can break this spell by observing that, with Harteros and Rene Pape, this is the recent Munich Don Carlo team. Fabulous. Lucky Milan.

I am so disappointed that I couldn't get tickets for this Lohengrin. I mean, for any of the shows but the prima, which I can't afford.
I saw the Munich Don Carlo that villagediva speaks of and was so looking towards the same cast at the Scala... Oh well. As the Rolling Stones put it, you can't always get what you want...

I had a tour of La Scala and its laboratories in September 2012 and saw some of the set of the new Lohengrin. Our guide said that it was sold out. I think she quoted top prices for the prima as 4000 euros. I may have misunderstood.
Oh well, at least we will see it a month of so later in the Opera in Cinema version.

In prior years, Opera in Cinema (Emerging Pictures) showed a simulcast in U.S. theaters of the prima. I was so looking forward to seeing what the mayor of Milan wore this year. Love all the finery. I usually attend live operas on week nights and people do not dress up like this on any old Tuesday night.

In the last image: is that construction running over the orchestra pit and into the auditorium part of the stage? Seems to obstruct views of people sitting on the far left side in the first rows.... Or is it just a temporary construction that allows the director to quickly jump onto the stage from the auditorium where he has a full view of the scene?

@Sheila: Emerging Pictures will be broadcasting this performance the 2nd half of January.
