Host Fabio Fazio, by far the coolest man on Italian TV, he of Rai Tre's unmissable talk show "Che Tempo Che fa" brings together a trifecta of classical insanity that is Daniel Barenboim, Claudio Abbado and Maurizio Pollini.
The television event, "Una notte all'opera" unites the three maestri for the very first time in a summit of musical superpowers. It happens tomorrow night from 9:10pm until 11:30 and OC is conflicted to cancel her dinner reservation at BiCE, but realizes that a plate of delicious gnocchetti freschi di castagne al pesto can be made fresh for her at whim. We hope no one spontaneously combusts or turns to vapor when the three sages appear on the same stage.
Barneboim will lead the round table to hype his approaching Sant'Ambrogio/December 7th Teatro alla Scala season premiere, where he'll be conducting Bizet's Carmen for assorted VIPs and their bored escorts. The Orchestra Filarmonica della Scala and GM Lissner will be on hand to further elucidate, with concluding footage that has been previously shot throughout the halls of La Scala.
