Milan has a long history of opera, producing some of the finest singers and performers in the international scene. The Teatro alla Scala is at the center of this activity. The theater has hosted the world’s most famous operas since 1778 and is recognized internationally for its design and sound.

From the outside the Teatro alla Scala has a reserved appearance, with a simple Neoclassical facade. The majestic beauty of the building is saved for its interior. See elaborate columns, mirrored hallways and the huge chandelier that hangs above the audience. The auditorium can hold more than 2,000 people. Its acoustics are highly regarded. Book a seat for a ballet, opera or classical concert from the theater box office or online to hear the stunning resonance of the room.

The museum has existed since 1913; much of it is devoted to the work of Giuseppe Verdi, one of the most famous opera composers in history.

Guided tours are available of both the theater and the museum. An admission fee applies. The museum is open daily, except for lunch time and specific days noted on the website.
