Ukraine consul asks La Scala not to open with Russian opera

(ANSA) - MILAN, NOV 10 - Ukraine's consul in Milan on Thursday asked La Scala not to open its season this year with the Russian opera Boris Godunov to avert possible propaganda uses of the Mussorgsky classic. Consul Adrii Kartysh has written to the superintendent of La Scala Dominique Meyer, to the mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala and to the governor of Lombardy Attilio Fontana to ask to "review" the theater's programming, not inaugurating the season on December 7 with Boris Godunov, and also avoiding other Russian shows so as not to pander to "any propaganda elements", the consult said in a statement.
