    The Teatro alla Scala in Milan is among the world's most famous opera houses. Most of the greatest singers of the past 200 years have appeared here. It was inaugurated on 3 August 1778 - FACT-👍

    beautiful place, great concerts
  • James M.
    Museum is worth a visit, quite small but you get to see the view of the theatre from inside a box.
  • Cosimo B.
    Beautiful decor with a very rich and interesting choice of operas, ballets and concerts.

    Dont take the cheapest tickets at the gallery,coz you'll have to stand up all the time if you want to watch, not If you want only to listen)

    Couldn't drop a tear on Tchaikovsky, it was too smooth. Where is the passion in the duet? He was happier in solo. This was like Russian sightseeing on MonteNap, not shopping. It didn't Crack my Nuts.

    Named after a woman who initially built a church in the same place. It which was demolished to create this beautiful theater. If you're lucky while touring, you'll see the performers during rehearsal!

    Everyone has its own free cloakroom. At the break you can ask for your ticket to be changed with any unsold ticket free of charge, just ask at the desk in the main foyer. The staff is very helpful.

    Make sure to book your ticket well in advance so you can get decent seats. If you're late, be prepared to pay lots of money for a crappy seat from someone re-selling their tickets.

    What an experience! Outstanding performance:-) Perfect all through. The building itself is also worth a visit. Be smart when buying the tickets. The hotel packages are not a great deal. Friendly staff

    If you have no time for the evening performance, at least go inside. Classy opera house.

    Fun place to visit and tour or see an opera! Sometimes there are rehearsals during the day that can be seen if you are not planning to stay for an opera.

    If you are touring the museum, check the sign by the box office, if there are rehearsals on, you won't be allowed to see the theatre.

    Awesome! Great opera, great place, and great acoustic. It is important to dress very elegantly, for men, shirt and jacket are required, better a suit.

    Awesome place and awesome operas. Possible to get last minute tickets at the entrance, or to queue for one of the 140 12€ tickets sold for the higher gallery some afternoons. A bit long, but worth it!

    It owes its name to the place where it was built, by the neoclassical architect Giuseppe Piermarini: the site of the church of Santa Maria alla Scala.

    Yes, music is great but tickets are expensive and almost impossible to find.
