La Scala to Create Virtual Exhibition Celebrating Legendary Italian Tenors

This month, Milan's opera house launched the free online exhibition entitled "Caruso, Corelli, Di Stefano — Italian Opera Legends" 


2021 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of the legendary Neapolitan tenor Enrico Caruso — in addition to the birth year of two other extraordinary Italian tenors, Giuseppe di Stefano and Franco Corelli.

In collaboration with Italy's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Italian music critic Mattia Palma has curated an exhibition to celebrate the lives and work of the three tenors, and to investigate how they "brought the nineteenth-century myth of the tenor into modernity."

Upon entering the exhibition, attendees will experience a virtual space which mimics several real rooms at Milan's La Scala opera house. Guests can then move freely between these rooms as if they were experiencing a physical exhibition.

The exhibition features archival recordings of the singers, which have been made specially available by Warner Music. Enrico Caruso, in particular, was a pioneer of phonographic recordings which were new at the close of the nineteenth century. In addition to these recordings, Punto Rec Studios have also contributed a range of video material for attendees to enjoy.

You can view the instructions and visit the virtual exhibition on La Scala's website.
