Teatro alla Scala
Conceived in 1776 as a fitting replacement for the Teatro Ducale (sadly destroyed by fire), the famous Teatro alla Scala has since become one of opera's legendary venues. Home to the prestigious La Scala di Milano opera company, it remains one of the city's liveliest cultural venues. Apart from opera shows, guests will also enjoy the plays, ballet shows and numerous other cultural events held here throughout the year. Check the website for calendar of events.
I know that sight lines and cramped seats can be a problem at La Scala. If you don't purchase good seats you can be challenged by poor visibility. If you're sitting in the gallery many people actually stand instead of sitting in their seats because it is so cramped. Keep in mind these problems exist because the theatre is based on opera-going ideals from two centuries ago. There are screens that translate the opera into Italian or English on the seat back in front of you, so if you don't speak the language of the opera (or even if you do) you can follow along. Expect great singing even if your knees are jammed into the seat.
One of the worest seats i have ever had! it was along the side. you had to look over the edge and back to the stage. the people in the row behind us could not see with out looking over our shoulder.
the opera was terrible!! I cant belive somone would sell tickets to this.
The Teatro alla Scala (or La Scala, as it is known), in Milan, Italy, is one of the world's most famous opera houses.
La Scala hosted the prima (first production) of many famous operas, and had a special relationship with Giuseppe Verdi. For several years, however, Verdi did not allow his work to be played here, as some of his music had been modified (he said "corrupted") by the orchestra.
La Scala's season traditionally opens on December 7, Saint Ambrose's Day, Milan's patron saint. All performances must end before midnight; long operas start earlier in the evening if need be.
