After the suspension imposed by the pandemic in 2020, the appointment that has become a tradition in the Milanese calendar finally returns in anticipation of Christmas: the spectacular concert in the Cathedral offered to the city by the Veneranda Fabbrica and the Comune di Milano illuminates the Duomo in harmony, emotion and enthusiasm to welcome citizens and visitors in the name of music.
The sonorous melodies blend with the Cathedral's architectural harmony, in the wake of that same upward momentum that was the inspiration for the city in the construction of its first symbol in 1387.
The concert will take place in Duomo in Wednesday, 15 December at 8.30pm: star of the event, organised with the support of Assolombarda, will be laBarocca, the ensemble specialising in the 17th- to 18th-century music of the Verdi Orchestra conducted by Maestro Ruben Jais, accompanied by the vocal ensemble directed by Maestro Jacopo Facchini.
The musical programme includes Dixit Dominus by Georg Friedrich Händel and Magnificat by Johann Sebastian Bach.
In compliance with the health regulations currently in force, admission to the concert in Duomo will be free, subject to availability and subject to mandatory booking on this page from 10 December.
Please note that the capacity will be extremely reduced (about 500 spectators) and admission, starting from 7.45pm, requires a Super Green Pass.
In order to facilitate security checks at the entrance, spectators are invited to empty their pockets of metal objects. It is not possible to enter the Cathedral with helmets, glass objects, and suitcases. Large, bulky bags are not recommended inside the Cathedral.
