As one of the world's most famous and instantly recognisible symphonies, Beethoven's Ninth Symphony
will be played to welcome the arrival of 2010 in the auditorium of Milan's Teatro alla Scala.
Classical music lovers will have the chance to listen to the Giuseppe Verdi
orchestra's interpretation of it, directed by British conductor Wayne Marshall. In true Milanese tradition, the concert will be followed by dinner at the Ristorante Savini
, the meeting place of the international jet set, known for its elegance and the quality of its service.
The complete programme also includes tickets for the ballet The Firebird
at the Teatro alla Scala
(with Roberto Bolle and Massimo Murru) on the 30th of December, and Bach's Christmas Oratorio
played in Milan's Duomo
on New Year's Day.
