Overview

Highlights

  • Walk through the past at Milan's grand opera house, Teatro alla Scala, and visit the museum
  • See opera and theater-related treasures, from porcelain figures to paintings, sculptures, and musical instruments
  • Stand in the place where the great composer Giuseppe Verdi launched his career in 1839

Description

Step into the full story of Milan's grand opera house, the Teatro alla Scala. Run your hands along its smooth marble walls, nourish your mind with its temporary and permanent exhibitions, and find out how the theater became such a revered landmark in Italian and European culture.

Milan's only opera theater was destroyed by fire in 1776, under mysterious circumstances. It was also devastated by war in 1943. What you'll be visiting is the latest, and we hope final, re-build - finished in 1946.

See changing opera and theater-related exhibitions, plus a permanent collection of Renaissance treasures. Stand where composer Giuseppe Verdi's career began in 1839 with the sweeping Oberto, Conte di San Bonifacio.

Browse ceramics and porcelain figures of Harlequin and other famous characters of the commedia dell'arte, or peek up close at the prima donnas of la Scala's golden age, as they bat their eyelashes at you from paintings and sculptures.

It's a cultural retreat for music lovers and a nice break from the crazy modern world outside.

It was a really good experience! We had access to the museum of the theater and at the theater too. The view of the theater was really magical and they left us as time as we wanted to take pictures and to see the whole theater.
