La Scala presents the world premiere of Fabio Vacchi’s Madina with choreography by Mauro Bigonzetti based on a libretto by Emmanuelle de Villepin, inspired by her novel La ragazza che non voleva morire.
Madina, the new ballet from Mauro Bigonzetti, opened last night, 1 October 2021.
Young Madina has been forced to become a kamikaze but she decides not to kill. It is a stunning act that sets off reactions, conflicting feelings, and hope for change. In this dance-theatre piece, words, music and movement co-exist.
