Teatro alla Scala is the world-renowned opera house in Milan that was inaugurated on August 3, 1778.
Most of Italy’s greatest operatic artists, and many of the finest singers from around the world, have appeared at La Scala during the past 200 years. Many of the most famous operas have premiered there. Today, the theater is still recognized as one of the leading opera and ballet theaters in the world. It is home to the La Scala Theatre Chorus, the La Scala Theatre Ballet and the La Scala Theatre Orchestra.
Even if you miss the opera season, make sure to attend a ballet in order to be dazzled by the beautiful theater. If you can’t attend a performance, at least take a guided tour during the day and visit the Theatre Museum.
