In 1872 Giuseppe Verdi presented his masterpiece, Aida, for the first time in Europe, at La Scala. Aida's history begins with the debut in Milan, after the Cairo premiere in February 1872, in which the staging was entrusted to the composer himself, Giuseppe Verdi. On the stage of La Scala, at the premiere of the 2006-2007 season, Aida delighted the audience who paid homage to Riccardo Chailly and the entire cast, with a 12 minute ovation. Verdi's Aida was beautifully illustrated with the superb set design and staging of Franco Zeffirelli. The costumes of the new production were designed by Maurizio Millenotti.
