The sets are the work of Antony McDonald. The musical part is entrusted to the one of the finest Mozart conductors of our times, Franz Welser-Moest, who will be appearing for the first time during an important new production at La Scala, while the main parts are played by Diana Damrau (Countess), Marianne Crebassa (Cherubino), Golda Schultz (Susanna) and Markus Werba (Figaro).
