While at the Teatro alla Scala alternate Mozart’s “The Magic Flute”, Strauss’s “Salome” and the usual “Traviata”, conducted by Toscanini, it is the Teatro Lirico to stage a sparkling novelty: “The Land of Bells”, operetta in three acts by Carlo Lombardo, already known conductor, composer and librettist, and Virgilio Ranzato, violinist converted to the genre since 1911, when he had composed his first operetta for Milan, “Il Velivolo”. The placid atmosphere of a fantasy country, suspended in a timeless tradition and shaken by the irruption of a contemporaneity that creates havoc, distracts Italians from torpor and better suits the image of a new and modern Italy, the one to which the advertisements of Rinascente and Philips light bulbs wink.
