After the extraordinary and thrilling success of the first edition, La Scala and its artists renew the tribute to Carla Fracci, who was and remains a cardinal figure in the history of dance, a key figure for Teatro alla Scala and for all of Italian culture. Hers is a story of talent, persistence, and hard work that has inspired and continues to inspire generations of young people, and not only those in the world of ballet. To celebrate this legendary étoile, the Ballet Director Manuel Legris has chosen to organize a gala in her name, as a regular date every season, to draw in and celebrate the world of international dance and ballet.
