A very special dance occasion in honour of a celestial alignment of events, the Gala des Étoiles celebrates the Ballet Corp's time-honoured tradition of a Grand Gala at La Scala as it coincides with Milan's tenure as host city of EXPO 2015. Symbolically espousing the spirit of the Universal Exposition by bringing together outstanding international talent, La Scala's étoiles – Svetlana Zakharova, Roberto Bolle and Massimo Murru – extend Milan's red carpet to a veritable constellation of guest dancers from around the world, including rising stars and luminaries of the ballet universe.

The female dancers were presented beautifully.This was a dazzling night of dance, a grand ‘Gala of stars’ indeed."
